    • This was my sons father have some respect you don’t know all the details

  • This is my cousin. He was deep down a good guy who had a hard life. He wasnt perfect and his life ended up in prison. He was a kind person. I spoke to his mom today, Glen was the kind of guy to help the homeless and take them to eat or even take them home and make them food. His organs are being donated so even in death he is saving lives. Please when you think of my cousin think of the good things.
