Bailey, Jr., Hallie Glen's Guestbook

I met Glen when Reba Roes connected me with him because he kept track of family history. I didn't have the interest or time to ask my dad questions when he was living--what a shame! He would have loved to talk about his family. But along came Glen with lots of information. His family bought the house where my grandfather was living before he came to live with us in Bonner Springs. Glen and I would share bits of history we had discovered for several years. He was always so kind and willing to answer my questions. I'm so thankful to have known him.

I always saw this man as just about the best person to represent the job of principal. Gentle but firm and always could be seen somewhere in the School. You’ll be missed by so many you influenced. May you Rest In Peace

I remember meeting this gentleman first as Mr. Bailey, my principal at JW Luff Elementary. Then I saw him at a family get together, It was explained to me that he was Aunt Ramona's sister's (Lola) husband. Ready...we said...father's, brother's, wife's, sisters, husband ! We got a good laugh at drawing it out. Rest in Peace sir.

What a great father you were. I cherish your smile and the many things you taught me. The way you called me "Shug", the way you loved my girls. You were loved by so many as evidence at your celebration of life. Wishing you peace in your eternal life in Heaven.
