It's always tough to lose a family member especially when they are as wonderful Uncle Glenn. One of my special memories as a kid was when he took us to the caboose. We got to see his work place but even better he had some of his baking ready - I believe it was cinnamon buns. He thoroughly enjoyed showing and explaining the train operations to us. We send our condolences to all the family and many many great big hugs too! Debbie and Bob

My most sincere condolences to the entire family of Glenn Simpson. I hope you all have wonderful memories to keep with you for the rest of your lives. I remember going out to camp in Hornepayne on a few occassions with Diane and having a great time. There was a raft that was made out of railroad ties, and we used to float around the lake looking for clams!! We always had good food and plenty of shenanigans. Of course we sometimes had to babysit the younger kids too, but that was something I enjoyed.
