I am saddened to learn of Mr. Glenn's passing. Linda and I are sending our thoughts, words and prayers to you and your family from Kodak, Tennessee. I remember Mr. Unger singing with the choir at St. John's. My favorite that he sang so beautifully was "His Eye Is On the Sparrow". God bless and Rest-In-Eternal-Peace Mr. Unger.

Enough cannot be said of Mr. Glenn and the wonderful, kind and considerate gentleman he was. My condolences to you and your family on the passing of your “dad”. It is never easy to lose a parent, no matter your age. I pray for your peace and comfort as you continue your life journey without your dad’s earthly presence. So sorry for your loss.
