Love Eileen, John, Shanni and Amelia
Rest in peace Glen.
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.........
love and miss ya very much
We always remember how you made us feel loved and welcomed. We will miss you dearly. We know you are in Gods care, and we envy that, knowing that someday we will all be together again. Just remember "keep the jokes coming"
May God Bless and Keep this Gentle Man. To the Beesmer family, we are sorry for your loss. John & Barbara Ioia
With sincere sympathy to the family. He is at rest .. no more pain or suffering but eternal life in the Lord's Kingdom.
