I was very saddened to hear about Glenn's passing. He was a very talented man with a huge heart and a great sense of humor. I have no doubt where he is now he is not suffering anymore. He was an encouragement to me in my own walk with Jesus. I'm thankful for all the wonderful memories and wonderful conversations we've had over the years.

Prayers for you all

I met Mr Glenn a few years ago professionally and considered him a blessing and friend. He was a good servant of the Lord and I am sure his reward will be great in Heaven. You fought the good fight now go rest in the arms of the Lord. May God bless your family.

Georgia Ann & family: Carroll and I have appreciated our friendship with the Hill family across many years. We especially enjoyed our times together while Bro. Glenn was pastoring Aldersgate in Jackson. I'll always remember the children's sermon in which Bro. Glenn asked if any of the children wanted to sing. Our granddaughter Macy was visiting with us that day and she eagerly grabbed the mike and began singing "The ABC Song" of Sesame Street fame. Bro. Glenn also graciously invited me to fill the pulpit on a few occasions and he served faithfully as a Reporter for our retirees' newsletter for several years. He was a loyal member of the Memphis Annual Conference and will be missed. Peace! Rev. Russell N. Gallimore, clergy colleague, Jackson, TN, July 17, 2021
