Dear Joan,
Sorry to read about Glenn's passing.
My husband Pat Mentone and Glenn were the best of friends at Plasto Lamps. Pat was the salesman for the company.
I remember visiting your home when the children were small, I think you were living
in Morton Grove at the time.
Pat passed away in 2015. Yes they were such very good friends. I still have some art work that Glenn made for us.
A great guy. You and the children are in my thoughts and prayers.
Joan Mentone
PS If the funeral was closer to me, I would attend to express my sympathy in
