    My prayer would be to provide words to comfort you all during this difficult time. The one thing that comes to my mind is how Uncle Glenn is healed and free of pain. He is now with our family members who have passed on. I know the words don’t take away the pain, but the thought of him being with Grandma Bonnie gives me great comfort. I pray for you all to have peace and strength in the days ahead. Sending my love to my Indiana family.

  17. June Etta Cheek Pilllion January 8, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    I am so sorry to hear that Glenn has passed away. I grew up on Shotgun Street just a few minutes from the Surber family. I spent a lot of time in their home and was treated just like one of the family. Glenn’s sister Judy and I graduated high school together. I have always had a special love for the whole family. May God give all of Glenn’s family and loved ones comfort and peace. ❤️🙏❤️
