Mr. Glasscoe was my AD when I first began coaching at St. Paul’s then CCA. I enjoyed the years I worked with him and all the games we attended together. He was a kindhearted man who gave glory to God for every blessing in his life. I consider it an honor and privilege to have known a man who truly loved the Lord wholeheartedly. Our prayers and condolences go out to his family and loved ones.
Sending Love to his Family! Prayers to the Family during a time of loss.
Dear Mary, It is hard to believe when our children leave this earth before we do.My heart goes out to you knowing that he was by your side almost literally,his whole life. God will send the Comforter to you and you will be in my thoughts and prayers.Love, Eleanor
