My condolences go out to Glenn’s family. He was a wonderful, kind and gracious man. I had the priviledge of caring for Glenn at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, Mn. He endured so much suffering and yet NEVER uttered one word of self pity or anger. I have spent countless moments sitting at his bedside talking to him. We shared many of our life experiences and he taught me so much. He read many passages to me from a book that he carried everywhere with him. He even chose two particular entries in that book and had me make copies to keep for myself. He encouraged me to read them during troubled times. Today will be one of those times. I thank God for bringing such a wonderful spirit into my life. I will never forget you Glenn Greene. God Bless you, your family and those who love you.
