  1. We sure loved Uncle Glenn. So many memories of the farm and farm house growing up. He was proud of his family and loved the Lord. Wish I could be there. We are praying for all of you. ♡ Please give my love especially to Aunt Lois.

  2. Lois and family, you are prayed for and thought about often in this time of separation from Glenn. I wish the distance was shorter so we could visit in person and reminisce about days gone by.
    May the Lord comfort you now and in the days ahead.

  3. Our heart felt condolences to Sister Kathleen and Dr. Andy Girwarnauth..

  4. Our prayers and sympathies go out all the dear members of your family. May our Good Shepherd’s arms of deep comfort hold you all.

  5. Prayers for the Wittenbach family! May God be your strong refuge in the coming days and weeks!

  6. My deepest, heartfelt sympathies for the entire family. May the Lord’s presence cover you as you grieve the loss of this good good man. What a legacy! Praying God’s comfort over you.
