 I started working at Lourdes Hospital in 1982, so blessed I was to have Glenn as my supervisor and mentor. Glenn had a true gift of caring, he was a positive leader, making everyone around him feel comfortable. Glenn's smile and sense of humor would light up a room, a blessing to his patients and his friends. To see a Glenn and Sharon was to see a happy fun loving couple, out in the world sharing their gifts. Michael and I are so very sorry, we cherish our good memories. We are sending our prayers for comfort to Sharon and Family. Peace and comfort, Pattie and Michael Cromwell

 Words are not sufficient to express the sorrow that we share with you in the passing of your loved one, brother Glenn Otey. Tealy, "Snapper", "AJ" and Tater Tot" you are a very special part of our church family and we are so blessed by all that you do for the church and the community. We are praying for your comfort and peace in this difficult time. We pray that the "Home Going" will be a glorious celebration that you will long remember and forever cherish. We pray for your safety as you travel. We pray that all of your family will experience the presence of GOD in such a way that your tears will turn to joy and the hope of heaven will lighten every burden. JESUS said "I am the resurrection and the life; he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die." (John 11:2-26. Love Love you!
