Virginia- I just this day read of Glynn's death and am so saddened. (I have been living in California since 2009 and had lost touch with Glynn.) He was a hero to all of us school boys in West Texas in the mid '50's, and my regard for him only grew once I came to know him as an adult, and as a friend, in Dallas. He was a warm and caring man, and adored you.
Dear Virginia and family, I just found out about Glynn's passing. I am so saddened to hear this. I had met him a few years back and really enjoyed meeting and visiting with him. I had hoped to know him better. We are both from the John King Gorham family, our grandparents were sister and brother. May memories bring you smiles and blessings from God give you comfort. He was a very special man and will be missed by many.
So sorry for your loss and Glynn's passing. May your family have the peace you need during this time. Many memories will bring you joy in the days to come as you reflect and remember those fun days we all shared at reunions and games.

I am shocked by Glynn's death. I did not learn of his passing until this evening while I was doing some research on the internet. Glynn and I attended East Paris during our early years. In 1957 Glynn came to Austin where I was living at the time to participate in the state high school championship football game against Corpus Christi Ray. Abilene won and I met Glynn after the game and we took a photo together. Later at Austin High that year in study hall, Saralee Concklin saw the photo of Glynn and I and asked if she could do a pencil sketch of the picture. It was quite good and I still have it today. I had also seen Glynn when he was an all-stater in baseball when Abilene played Paris for the state championship. Paris won that game and I still have the program from that game today. I will miss Glynn as he was one of my good friends in elementary school and I did my best to keep up with his career. I too when into athletics, but as a coach spending most of my career in the Austin I.S.D. Glynn was a great guy and my prayers and thoughts are with his family.

I am Dudley and Pat's son Steve. My heart sank when I learned of Glynn's passing. He was always a large part of SMU going back to when my Dad started coaching there in '59. I remember hearing both your names in many of Mom and Dad's conversations. I surely thought you two were some kind of royalty. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours,
