I was a 10-year-old children when they donated me a book called Mercury Project.
On those pages I met the seven astronauts of the program. Glenn immediately became my hero. Today, two years after his death, I want to pay tribute to him with my affectionate remembrance.

I am sorry for your loss. I know the loss of a family can be sad but there is a hope for those who have died to be resurrected in the 'new system' also known as paradise. God will remember all those who have died, if he can name all the stars than he can remember our names even those who have died. May you and your family soon feel better again. Never look back and always keep moving forward.

My sincere condolences on the passing of Senator Glenn. My husband, myself and my son were honored to meet him and his precious wife. What a wonderful and memorable experience it was. My husband purchased the Beech Baron from Mr. Glenn and we made the trip up to Dayton to have him and Annie sign the plane. A couple of years later my husband passed. I still have the plane and cherish the memories from the time the Glenns flew it and the short time my husband enjoyed it. May God and wonderful memories bring comfort to Annie, his family, and dear friends.

December 12, 2016
John Glenn was a true American, and hero that any generation would be lucky to have as a standard to look up too as a youngster or any age. I still remember watching his orbital flight in 1962, and when I heard he was thinking of training to go up on the Space Shuttle, I sent him a message at his Senate office and told him to "Go for it!" I am glad he did. I never had the opportunity to meet him in person as I had with Gus Grissom and later Alan Shepard. But in his life's work I feel that I did. May God bless you as you say your final farewell to him in this life, and I am sure he is smiling down on all of you and this nation.
December 11, 2016
A true American hero, never to be forgotten.

In the end, it is not the years in your life that counts it's the life in your years - Abraham Lincoln
Hearfelt sympathies to all in the family.
A role model whom I embraced in my teen years while growing in the village of Kampong Java, Butterworth, Province Wellesley, Malaysia.I was a keen enthusiasist in space programme and astronomy, motivated and encouraged by my late dad Joshua M Subbiah. Looking at the night sky outside our home gave me hope to explore human limitation, that the sky is the limit. I was 11 years when the late John Glenn became the first astronaut to orbit the earth on 20th Febraury 1962. All the family members sat around and listened to the transistor radio.That space orbit inspired and strengthened my core and endurance to break human boundaries of any kind. You gave me the compass to navigate the open sky.What a figure of inspiration you provided me, members of my family in Malaysia. Glenn's audacity and valor,sharp intellect, and magnanimity were the hallmarks of a life of loftiness and lustre.
"Our destination is a place,
Far greater than we know.
For some the journey's quicker,
For some the journey's slow.
And when the journey finally ends,
We'll claim a great reward,
And find an everlasting peace,
Together with the Lord".
I bid you farewell and hold you in eternal memory.
Rest in Peace dear John!

Love leaves a memory no one can steal; earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. Godspeed American Hero John Glenn. Mrs. Glenn and Family have my deepest sympathy.
December 09, 2016
Mrs Glenn and Family:

COL Glenn is the only answer to the question, "Who would you like to be like?" Yesterday upon hearing the news, my mind flashed back to Feb 1962 where as a 10 yr old boy, we looked out the window of our classroom (in Queens, NY) trying to see the capsule orbit. After school that's all we talked about and all my friends wanted to be Marines!
I'll never forget his service to the country-as astronaut, pilot, and senator. I sincerely hope my recollection brings you some solice.

I was 8 years old, in third grade, and our whole class got to watch the lift off. It was so exciting. Now, more than then, I realize how much courage it took, to travel, alone, in the Friendship 7 capsule. Whew...that's amazing, that's what you call real faith! God Bless John Glenn.
December 09, 2016
Dear MR. Glenn,

I heard you were not doing well. I mentioned to my husband you and my father may meet again in Heaven. You both passed Dec. 8. You worked together in the Mercury program. May you both Rest In Peace unless you are now exploring the rest of the galaxy.
December 09, 2016
I do believe Bobby Castaneda said it all. May God be with your family as you have made your final journey.

December 09, 2016
Over the past few days I have thought about John and Annie Glenn a great deal. I grew up in the era of space exploration and remember watching the incredible accomplishments of people like Astronaut Glenn on our little black and white tv. I recognized the immense courage these people had. In school, I learned about him and his adventures. I even chose him as the subject of my 5th grade class report.
But, it wasn't until a few years ago a chance encounter sealed my true admiration and respect for this amazing man.
I was at the Beechwold veterinary hospital with 2 of our dogs for routine appointments. I was in the waiting room and the doors opened. In walked 2 just regular folks. They were about the age of my own parents. Then.... I took a double take; I realized who I was looking at... John and Annie Glenn. Wow! I was in awe. Then it hit me. Annie Glenn walked to the desk while John respectfully stood back. Apparently they had lost one of their treasured cats. Annie brought in some items to donate for other cats and she thanked everyone for their loving kindness when caring for their beloved pet. Tears were obvious in both Annie and John's eyes.
No pretentiousness, no pomp and circumstance. Just a beautiful, humble couple grieving a loss. They are people just like me and every person in there who had lost a loving pet. But they were also a couple who have lived their lives well and have set an incredibly positive example for all of us.
I will always remember that moment and the love and respect for Annie that John demonstrated in that moment. Very humble and down to earth.
Godspeed.... indeed.
December 09, 2016
John Glenn, I grew up hearing all about you and your endeavors whether in space, politics or life. You are one of the true American Heroes and one to be looked up to. Thank you and as you said "God Bless and God's speed" John Burd

Condolences, thought & prayers go out to the family, friends and loved ones of a true American hero. I remember the Mercury Astronauts & when John Glenn went into orbit around the earth. What a thrilling time that was for our country and how proud he made us all feel. A truly brave and amazing man, his accomplishments will never be forgotten. May he rest in eternal peace and may the perpetual light shine upon him.
December 09, 2016
You deserve to rest in peace. A hundred thousand thank you's for all you did while on the planet Earth to make it better. While compiling the long list of your commendable accomplishments, the hardest might have been holding onto and mastering the fine art of being a gentleman and remaining an exemplary human being throughout it all. Now, as a spiritual entity, please watch over us and guide us to integrity and respect in our dealings with one another.

Dear John Glenn,
I met you in 1963 while stationed in the USAF in California, you visited our fighter pilots and i got to shake your hand, what an honor it was.

December 09, 2016

God Speed to the finest of American Hero's!
December 09, 2016
A true American hero. But that could accomplish 1% of what Senator Glenn did.
December 09, 2016
Conceded, Few could have experienced such a feat as climbing as far into the realms of outer space that John did and his own longevity was exceptional. I admire his and others' explorations which confirm the limitlessness of space and the finiteness of humans. The tremendous need for knowledge though, of Creation, also bears awesome witness to human dependence its residents have on it. Awesome planet earth where we were designed to live. The planets stay their orbit and no matter how brutally the earth is treated, it's Designer continues to re-invigorate it! It's all good! Psalms 104:5.
December 09, 2016
May God give you strength to endure this difficult time. God will keep him in his memory.
December 09, 2016
Annie,
Sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayer are with you and your family.

Once again John Glenn has slipped the bonds of Earth, this time to touch the face of God. He was a patriot. He was a dedicated husband, father and grandfather. He truly was an American hero. Annie, Dave, and Lyn - thank you for sharing him with us. I have coveted our friendship over the years. The stars shine brighter today with his presence. Godspeed, John Glenn.
December 09, 2016
To the Family, I too can feel some of your pain. Only Angels can tell you how great the "every day John Glenn" was. I am a Gold Star Marine widow. My Beloved was part of the Gemini Series aboard the USS Wasp. The Wasp did not pick up your Marine.
I'd left my hometown, Boston and gravity slowly pulled me to Georgia. Your real Hero, found me in Georgia and gave me a "buck up Marine" chat.
He left the country town and word was out that "John Glenn was here".
In my Dad's NJ township, Dad saw us on CNN in the late night news. My laugh. That wee township had just gotten cable. Dad was tickled at his daughter and "her Friends".
The United States' Marines guard the Gates of Heaven so we know what has happened....
December 09, 2016
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
December 09, 2016

CELESTE. BUT I NEVER KNEW SOMEONE LIKE JOHN GLEN AND ANNIE EVER EXISTED.THEY LOVED THEIR STATE, THEIR SCHOOL CONCORD HIGH AND GAVE OF THEMSELVES TO EVERYONE. NEVER MET A STRANGER. WHEN I SHOOK THEIR HANDS I ENDED UP CRYING. THEY WERE SO SINCERE AND SO CARING.
WE WERE LUCKY AND BLESSED TO HAVE THEM AND NOW MY PRAYERS ARE WITH THOSE WHO KNEW THEM MUCH BETTER THAN I AND I KNOW WHERE EVER GOD HAS THEM ...IT IS A HAPPY TIME FOR JOHN AND ANNIE.
