This week's Newsletter is available here:
http://glen-l.com/a/a.php/b/3f/ktl2x8?t=h

If you aren't signed up for the Glen-L Newsletter, you may not know that my father Glen's health is failing. He's 97 and was recently hospitalized for pneumonia. We have him home with 24 hour care but he's really weak. Your prayers are greatly appreciated. Thank you...

A man can only wish to have touched so many lives through his life's work and passion. To have helped bring so much joy and accomplishment to so many people and families. Please tell him again just how much we appreciate him. We will be thinking of you all.

I built my first Glen-L boat from magazine plans when I was 14 years old. It was the first of many. As Vupilot has said, Glen has touched many lives in so positive a manner. He has certainly had a productive life doing something he enjoyed and we encourage you to celebrate it. All should hope to do so well.
My thoughts are with you at his time.

I wish I could have met him at any one of the Gatherings. I am sure he would have a smile seeing many different designs all in one place.
Godspeed to him and all the family.

Thoughts & best wishes from this side of the pond too.

Planning a whole fleet, but starting with a Zip...I think.

For sure!!! It was Glen and family that got us all together. I guess that makes us all part of the Glen L family.

You are all definitely part of our family. I just got a video from dad's caretaker as the physical therapist is with him and he's walking! I'm so jazzed--this is such a huge improvement from where he's been. This is such an encouragement!
