Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Our sincere condolences for the passing of your loved one. Deb and I have been friends with Glenn and Joan after meeting them at Whispering Pines camp about 30 years ago. We became trailer park friends and always shared stories about what’s happening in the park and in each other’s lives. I will always remember Glenn had the most beautiful and manicured lot in the camp. Sometimes on walks around the camp I would walk and leave tracks in the sand. I’m sure Glenn had a good idea who left them. Great laughs and memories. Bert & Deb denOuden - Posted by: Bert & Deb denOuden (Lake friends) on: Feb 13, 2021
