    Thinking of you on this most difficult day.

  13. Nancy and Family,
    You and your family will be in my prayers as you deal with the loss of Glen. I will always remember with fondness the days that he worked with the Title 1 teachers in Falcon. He was a very kind and gentle man who cared very much about us as teachers and the students of Falcon. I appreciated the calming influence he had on others. He will be missed.

  14. Nancy,
    I am very sorry to hear of your loss. The days of the Pleasant Hill functions and parties were very fond memories for Roxie and I. Sorry we lost touch of all the Pleasant Hill folks as Roxie also passed away in late November 2009.

  15. Dear Nancy, Greg and Chris,

    Robert just came over to tell us about Glen’s death. What can we say? You are in our hearts at this sad time. We will remember Glen as a good friend and hope that your wonderful memories as a family will help you through this time of grief.

  16. Dear Nancy,
    We were so sorry to hear about Glen. Val and I keep in touch, through email, and she had seen it in the Marshalltown paper. Neither of us had your address to send you a card. Glen was our fearless leader and a good friend during the “good old days” at Pleasant Hill. We share many fond memories of those days. We will keep you, and your family, in our thoughts and prayers during this sad time.
    Karen and Rich Larimer

  17. Dear Romine Family

    I just wanted you to know that Glen was one of the best supervisors I ever had the pleasure of working with. Glen was instrumental in my career as a special education teacher and I am forever grateful for his support throughout the years. I am heart broken to hear that he is no longer with us.

  18. We were so sad to hear the news. My husband Richard and I have been reminiscing about how nice, gentle, special Glen was. I am so happy our lives crossed via our special ed director careers. Our thoughts are with all of the family.
    Lorrie and Richard Harkness

  19. Dear Nancy, Greg and family and Chris and family,

    My deepest sympathy’s go out to you all in this time of loss. Glen was a very special man. He was my mentor and was probably the greatest force in allowing me to become the person and the educator I wanted to be. He was my first principal as a student teacher and a first year teacher. He always validated any ideas that I had for new and different things to do with those very special students. He encouraged and allowed me to test my wings and build a level of confidence that I had not had until I met him.

    And, he was the reason that we followed our dream to live and raise our kids in Colorado. I so appreciated the opportunities that he made available to me.

    And my final relationship with him was as a friend. He will always hold a very special place in the hearts of my children–he made them feel special, too. We spent some really good times together in Colorado.

    I loved him and he will be missed. God bless.

  20. Dear Nancy, we are heart-broken to hear the news about Glen. He was such a very, very special man with great compassion for the children he worked with and the staff he supervised. His memory will always hold a special place in our hearts! Blessings to you and your family.

  21. Dear Nancy,
    Our deepest sympathy to you and your family at this sad time. We will always cherish the happy memories of fun times with you and Glen as colleagues and friends.
    Russ and Dottie McDavid

  22. Nancy and Children I am sorry to hear about Glen’s death. I certainly enjoyed the years he supervised me as the speech-language pathologist at Pleasant Hill. I will be making a memorial to the Hospice unit in his name. God Bless. Sandy Bennett

    Our heartfelt sympathies to all of you. Glenn was a wonderful loving man that cared so much for God’s special children! We will always remember all of your kindness when we moved to Marshalltown with our children. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all!!
    Love, Glenn and Luann Harmelink

    We were so sad to hear about your husband. You were Samantha’s best teacher we think and it has made her a very strong reader. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. It was good you had a few years together after you retired.

    God Bless You All, Jim and Corine Daubert
