    Heaven is rejoicing now that Glenn is with God. Those left to follow will miss him and the example he left us. Well done, thou good and faithful servant.

    Glenn and Dorothy made me feel important as a kid.
    That made a lasting impression on me. Glenn showed me how a man should conduct himself. I’m so happy Glenn is in Heaven. I’m sad he is gone. I’m also sad I cannot make it to Hibbing for the funeral. I wish I could be there. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.
    In Christ and friendship,
    Scott Kuntz

    My dad Hjalmer Bodin worked as a custodian at the courthouse in Hibbing in the 1960s and 1970s and often referred to his coffee time with the deputy sheriffs and their camaraderie . Your dad’s name was among those he referred to favorably . Such a long time reference as I read a Range newspaper. Condolences to your family .
