Hello 55ers

It is with great honor and respect that I address you all today Dec 27 2010. I am 49 years old now. My mother Joyce is still doing well. We are in Anchorage Alaska. I have a home near Pensacola Florida but I am in Alaska for an extended stay with my Mother and foster sister Patricia. My mother and I arrived in Alaska in Jan. 1st 1964 just before the big earthquake of that year in March. She lives in the house I grew up in.

My mother tells me I was on campus for a time. The late great General William Westmoreland bounced me on his knee at a christmas dinner in the mess hall once. My mom says I cried the whole time.

I do not remember my father Norb because I was only about 2 when he was taken from us. I've seen old photos and 8mm film of him. My mother has told me of him. If anyone here remembers my father I would be honored and thrilled to hear your stories about him....how he lived how he died and how he influenced you.

If anyone wants to talk with Norbs' wife Joyce please email me back your information and she will happily get back to you.

May God bless you all and thank you for serving our country.

Mike Glidden

Its almost 2am wednesday feb 27. Joyce is peacefully and with little suffering now in the hands of God and the doctors. We are at Providence Hospital. She is having a heart attack. If God wills her more time with us and she makes it through the night she will be admitted for at least few days.

The doctors are going to try a procedure to remove a blood clot from an artery in her heart. Please pray for Gods will to be done; that if this is my moms time please send angles to comfort her and take her home where we all will be soon as life passes us all by in our time like the twinkle of an eye. Please pray for her but also for each of yourselves who will be distressed by this news...may Gods love be with those in the flesh who morn those who are happy and at peace and home with Christ in their appointed time. I love her and those of you she loved or would have had she known you.

Her email is "joyceglidden@hotmail.com" and If anyone wants to talk to her and God gives her more time my cell phone number is...907-280-8137

Mom is home.

Throughout all of her ordeal it was obvious your prayers for her were rising favorably before our Lord. She is looking at regular heart doctor visits now. She has recovered so completely you would never know she had just gone through a life threatening ordeal. Either it just was not her time OR God heeded your righteous prayers to keep her with us awhile longer.

God bless you.
