Terri Hofbauer Cruz on Apr 18, 2017

Aunt Pat, Jr, Bruce and Eileen and family you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know that Uncle Glen is in a better place with no suffering, but it doesn't make your loss any less painful. Hold on to the memories and good times and he will be with you forever. And as I told Eileen, I can picture the pearly gates with Uncle Glen on this side and Uncle Jimmy on the other side with that huge smile of his, just waiting to show Uncle Glen the way. Can you imagine the "Beesmer Brothers" reunions in heaven? Smiles, jokes and a beer or two and Grandma to keep them in line. Smile and remember the good times.........
