What a Good Man Glenn was. Always kind & friendly, welcoming you to his home & family as if you were already part of it. His generosity & friendly demeanor was definitely passed down to his children Karen & Joel. He will be missed, but not forgotten.
Our sincere sympathy is extended to the Horning family in the loss of Glen. He was a 50-year Masonic Veteran. Proud to have known him.

Joel, Lindsay, Leila and Luke: I am so sorry for your loss. Having lost 4 close family members in the past 4 years, I know how hard it is. There are no words people can say that will soothe the pain but just knowing that people love you and are praying for you, supporting you and lifting you up, helps a bit. Cherish all the memories and keep him alive in your hearts. Love, Carrie Ehrlich
