Glen was blessed to have the very best aunts, uncles and cousins. They were all so good to him. But most of all Glen's Grandpa Merrill and Grandma Betty were the best grandparents anyone could ever hope for.

Glen had many special friends he loved to spend time at the Apple House. Glen was blessed to have the very best aides while attending Castle Valley Center.
