Glenn’s memorial

I just want to take this opportunity to say thank you for all the cards, tributes, phone calls, emails, prayers and expressions of sympathy.  It has been very encouraging to hear how Glenn's life touched so many people worldwide - a real testimony of how God uses us in our weaknesses.

As all of our family are out West, and Glenn wanted to be buried in a family graveyard next to his grandparents, we had a funeral service here in Mississauga and then travelled out to our home town to have a memorial service for our families and friends out West.  The memorial service in Alberta was videotaped, and is now online at for those of you who may be interested in watching it.

As you can imagine, Glenn has left a big hole in our hearts, and yet we rejoice that he has now joined "the cloud of witnesses" (Hebrews 12:1) cheering us on.  The call to each of us is to carry on, standing strong and fighting the good fight.  We grieve, but not as those without hope.  Thank you again for all your love and support.  We continue to covet your prayers as we adjust to life without Glenn.

Keep the faith....
