    Glenn Higgins welcomed me into your family over 30 years ago, shared the wisdom you gained over your lifetime and, most important of all, you allowed me to marry your first child, Kim. I am so grateful to have had you in my life, and will miss you dearly.  God speed, my dear friend.

    I’ve been thinking of you guys so much lately.  Now I know why.  I’m so sorry, Joan.  We had some good times together.  Carl, Jim, Jack, Bobby, and Richard are probably having a good old jam now.  Take care.
