"My Thought's & Prayer's" go out to Wife Nancy, & Daughter's Debbie, & Shelley, & the Extended Family's. Glenn was a Good-Man & One of the Best Mayor's in my Growing. Up in the Burg. In a Mayor's Position when it is Called for you Half to be both. Stern & Fair. And Mayor Glenn Meek's did his Job Well & full filled his Job Description & did his Job Well. And Balanced that with Loving his Family being there for his Family And being a Supervisor, at International, & being a Volunteer Fireman. It takes a Tough Man & Individual to Balance all of this. And Glenn Meek's, was One Tough Cookie as the Saying Goes. I always Enjoyed the Conversations Glenn Meeks & I would have when. He would Break Away & Stop in & have a Hamburger & a Coke. I am So So Sorry to hear of the loss in the Family of Glenn May "GOD" "BLESS" Nancy, & Debbie", & Shelley, & The Extended Families. And may "GOD" Come into their Heart's & help them through the Coming Day's & Give them Strength May your "Journey up to Heaven" have been a "Peaceful Journey" May you be at R.I.H. Glenn Ya-Friend Zimmie
