Cheri - Sweet funeral! Wonderful personal memories from the kids and life long friends. I think Glen just hit another Home Run! Our best wishes to you from the Conference Center Hosts.
From Gary M. Goodrich & Joyce K. Goodrich :
Dear Cheri, we were so surprised about losing Glen and saddened to think of your loss which is also a loss to so many of us. Both of you were such devoted missionaries at the Conference Center and a delight to greet each week. Thank you for sharing so many experiences and your friendship and excellent missionary service will continue to impress others and resonate with people's lives down through the eternities.
From Bambi Heater:
Many, many people will miss having Glen around!! His big smile, his bright blue eyes, his positive uplifting personality, always making everyone around him feel accepted, loved and special are all things we love about him!! It made me feel so happy when he would joke about wanting me for a daughter :) I would love to be a part of their family!! Glen was such a great host at the Conference Center!! I was always so happy when I'd see him just being himself to strangers. I know that he had a great impact on everyone who came through those front doors. He was truly a Christlike person, and I am sure that he helped bring the spirit into the guest lives that he served. He was a great part of their eventual conversion to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I am sure that he will be blessed throughout eternity for all the wonderful things he did for God's children. I'm sure he's up in heaven doin good, just like he always does!! Until we meet again my dear friend Glen, we love you!!!
From Cliff Beattie:
What a tremendous experience it has been to serve with Glen (& Cheri) since the summer 2017 at the LDS Conference Center in Salt Lake City. I'm a transplanted "spud" also, from Rexburg, and found Glen so easy to talk with and so easy to learn from. He is a good man with a great heart, and I'll carry his influence with me throughout my life.
From Susan D Kelley:
Cheri,
I am so sad to hear of Glen's passing. He is such a dear friend. I loved visiting with him at the Conference Center every week. We had a kinship talking about farming. He said he missed driving his pickup with his dog in the back. He always asked about my garden and raspberries. He called me his adopted sister because we had a lot in common. I will truly miss him. He made each one of us feel special because that was his wonderful way. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers. I love you both. Susan Kelley

From Joe and Jan Warr:
We served with Glen and Cheri at Martins Cove. They were awesome missionaries/ministers/servants! Of course, with our names being the same, we traced our family history and found our common ancestors. It was soooooo good to find more "Cousins" and have a continuous relationship with them in our lives. So happy for our time together and will look forward to more visits with Cheri and an eventual a reunion with all of us together again!
From LeAnn Warr:
Glen was not only my cousin but a good friend -- he was so much fun! I will remember all the good times we shared. Oakley holds so many memories. The last time I saw him many years ago, he introduced me to one of his sons as the sister he never had. My prayers are with Cheri and all of the family. I have lost all of my immediate family and it is not an easy experience but memories help fill the void.
From Cindy & Kent Mackay:
Oh we are saddened to hear of your husband, father, grandpa's passing. Glen always had a smile on his face and a great attitude about life. Now he begins his next life in a wonderful place that someday we will be as well. May you find peace in the Plan of Happiness, it is real.
From Chris & Tammy Warr:
Uncle Pud was so influential in my teenage years. We are so sorry He has past so unexpectedly, but what a way to go so peacefully. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
