    To Mrs. Shirley Randy and Cindy and all the family. We lost a wonderful Christian Singer and our loss is Heavens gain. I loved brother Glen he was like another father figure to me. I could always talk to him and he took time for me. He was a fine Christian example both on and off stage. Mary and I loved the many times at the SRJ in Live Oak when we would sit and talk and here the Florida Boys sing. I know he enjoyed singing and he loved people. We were proud to have known him as a good friend. We hope to be there for his memorial service on Tuesday. Yawl are in our thoughts and prayers ❤️ 🙏

    Never got to see him or the Florida Boys live.
    I grew up in central Florida and watched them every week on the GOSPEL SINGING JUBILEE. He always had a great smile and what a voice.
