    During my college years in Laramie, Glenn and Jeanette were my "family". Glenn and I spent many hours working on community projects. We had many memorable hunting trips. He was always a true freind regardless of the circumstances. Glenn, I will see you on the other side of the river!

    To the family and friends of Glenn we offer our condolences. He had a smile big enough for everyone. His love and kindness was never ending. We are thankful for our friendship - Doug's beginning in 1966. We loved hosting the family and "birthday boys" at the Hotel. Those moments are sadly missed. We know and feel your sadness but will treasure the memories. Jeanette and Eric are also missed. Wish that we could have made it today for the celebration of a wonderful life and family, but the roads were not cooperating when we had to leave.

    Glenn was an awesome person. I remember when my sister brought him home to meet the family. I thought he was the coolest guy ever. I never changed my mind. I cannot think of my sister, Jeanette, without thinking of Glenn and I can't think of Glenn without thinking of my sister. They were ideally close. He treated me so well and I felt like he was my big brother. He was more than a brother in law, he became a close friend. Like many others, I will miss him so. Rest in Peace Glenn.

    We remember Glenn and Jeanette with fond memories as a fellow property owner at Boulder Ridge. Thinking of Glen brings a smile to my face -- he was just that sort of man. A wonderful family -- we will miss Glenn, but his memory will shine in our hearts. Jim and Sharon

    So saddened to hear about so saddened. We knew each other my whole life basically - we hunted pheasants in Kansas together for several years...shot some trap together, and certainly shared some sparkling on several occasions! He was always a pleasure to be around with a smile on his face, and such a friendly demeanor. He was more of a teacher and father figure to me, because of his relationship with my dad, Gregg Jackson. He will surely be missed, my condolences to the whole Scott family, I am sorry for your loss. All my best, Brad Jackson
