    I was saddened to see the notice of Glen’s passing. Coincidentally, I had been thinking and wondering about you recently. I suspect it’s been a tough road for you and your family over the past several years. May you find peace and comfort in the memories of happier times.

  5. My condolences to the Blake family. The Service today was what I feel Glen orchestrated from the Heavens. I had been searching for Glen on Face Book and friends who attended Sherwood school with us and that is how I came to hear of Glen’s passing. I’m so grateful I was able to say good bye and view the photo’s of a Glen that I lost touch with. murray.mill.@shaw.ca

    My deepest sympathy to you and the rest of your family. I found myself thinking of Glen today and was saddened to find out about his recent passing since just seeing him last September. I will truly miss his rambunctious nature, zest for life, and that dashing smile. He touched alot of lives and will be dearly missed, but never forgotten.
