The 'toppling over in slippery conditions' made my coworkers come over and look at what I was 'LoL-ing' about

02/02/12 - RIP Glen - the Arrow of Elliot and the little man with the big heart that truly was larger than life.

You have touched us and left us better for having known you - even if it was only briefly.

For grabbing the moment and living the day It's been way too early that you were taken away
