    You know they say that if you learn something new, that day was not wasted. As Brian’s Realtor in the sake of his Norwalk home, I met Glenn and he was always very cheerful and busy working around the home. I had many interesting conversations with Glenn and I learned something new each time. Glenn reminded me of a younger Mick Jagger,. He was knowledgeable in every subject. I never looked at him as being sickly he was full of life and courage.
