PostSubject: 5th anniversary...Glen West   Tue Apr 17, 2018 8:05 pm

It was 5 years ago tonight Glen West left me a message on my answering machine.  We were to get together the next day or so.  The next morning, April 18th, 2013, Glen was gone.  His adult sons and a few of us friends attended a memorial gathering that weekend at Glen's home in St. Augustine.

This is my homage to Glen.  I believe when you invoke the memory fo someone they live again for that moment.  Each year I've posted a little note about Glen on this and the Impala SS Forum.  Glen was a true friend and a genuine human being.  Those of you who remember him know what I mean.  Our wagons were an introduction to a friendship that set a high bar for the remainder of my life.  Many of us would do well to have Glen's attitude about living and have a little fun along the way.  We never know when the trip may end.  It would be nice to think we could be remembered.  

I personally expect to be greeted by a crown of grateful cats.  Meanwhile, still here and another tip of my hat to a fine guy.

I may have to go eat some "bad for you" food with extra desert in celebration!

Glen was a Genuinely nice guy. He offered his house/garage so I could fix my wagon.... BEFORE we met.
