    Oh Glenn when I read your name it brings back memories of when I used to call you “Glenn Ferdinand the Bull Carlson”. You are now reunited with your name-sake, our Grandfather. I have such memories of our lives growing up., You were always there for me. We fought like cats and dogs at times, I honestly felt like I was your live punching bag at times. You couldn’t pass me with out punching me. lol. I remember having to get on the roof of the barn so you would have a target for the cow pies and horse droppings. I can remember we would climb trees side by side and then try to see who could make a branch get the closest to the ground. Maybe that is why I don’t like heights anymore. We would ride the calves and twist their tails to make them go faster. I could go on and on. Then as we got older you were working for Abner and you bought me my first wrist watch, (which I still have), my first white coat, and my final resting place at Greenacres. Then you got married to my good friend, how lucky was I, someone I definitely approved of. You gave me my first beautiful nieces. I could go on and on reminiscing about our lives. You were a wonderful brother, and I will always love you.
