Condolence & Memory Journal

My heartfelt condolences to you Aunt Florence. Uncle Glenn was a wonderful friend and Uncle to me; I shall never forget him. We shared many occasions together from when I was just a young child and all those dinners and holidays spent together with you and him at Grandpa Steely's home in Lincolnville. I am so sorry to learn he has left us, but I know he had a full and happy life. I'll always remember his laugh and generosity. So sorry I didn't get to see him during the last few months and share more good times together, but will surely remember all the good times we did spent together in the last 60+ years!
Conrad Steely.

Dear Mrs. Steeley (Florence), Wendel, Debbie, and girls ... and the entire Steeley family,
I was so saddened to hear about Glenn. I just loved him so much. When we lived across from the Mobile Bulk Station, he came right out to help us when my daughter Sunday fell out of the car!!! He always let us cut through on my way to work :0) ! Of course we liked to have a drink at Turkey Creek, way back when. He and my Moma shared the same birthday! He always, always had a wonderful SMILE and a warm hello for all of us! I pray that God will comfort your hearts with precious memories, and keep you safe and good through this difficult time. He will be greatly missed!
Love you,
Louie :0)
