  5. Glenda, Ken and Darryl; I am so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing. I don’t have to remind anyone how far we all go back but it has definitely been many years. The last time I saw Glenn was at my Dad’s funeral in 2006 and he reminded me how much he loved my Dad. For several years the two of them were unstoppable. M&M would not be what it is today had it not been for them. We all hear the expression that time heals all and that is true to an extent. Cherish the years you had with him and never let his legacy go silent. You are all in my prayers. May God give each of you and yours the peace and comfort needed at this time.
