Not sure what to say?

Can someone from the family contact me? I am Glenn Glass' daughter-in-law and would like to send something to Mike's family.

Mike will be missed. I loved playing with him in the early AFL years and on the golf course in our later years.

Godspeed to a wonderful man and a legendary football player. The only player from my little high school in the hills of East Tennessee to go on to play professional football. Condolences to his family. Mike (David) we will always remember you.

I am so sorry about the loss of Mike. He was one of the best of the best! The Stratton family has my deepest condolences. As the days, weeks and months pass during this difficult time, may you continue to be surrounded and comforted with the love and support that is needed and by fond memories of him.

Our deepest condolences to the family. We pray that God continues to strengthen and comfort you all during this extremely difficult time.

Although I never met you, the "hit" will always be remembered. I was at War Memorial that day with my dad and brother and with the Bills trailing we were all a bit "tight."

Then the hit came and the Bills had a complete turnaround. Thankyou to Mike and his family for all those wonderful memories!!
