In Memoriam
Charles Robert Glaser Jr.
9/26/60 - 7/24/07
It’s been two years since we lost you, but it still seems like yesterday. There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t think of you, talk about you, or look at your picture and wish that you were still here with us. Knowing that you’re making a place for us and our pets in heaven comforts us and knowing that someday we will see you again.
Our last day together, we wish that we would have shared that bowl of chicken soup with you. Always loving you forever, Mom, Jeff Sr., Jeff Jr., Zack, Heather, Hayley and little Tony.
