My young life was blessed by his love. His spirit still lives within my heart and his voice still sings within my soul.
He is not gone until all those who knew him, and the generations that know them, are gone.
Until then . . .

Glenn Moore was good friend of mine. We met at the First Baptist Church of Castro Valley. In the Fall, almost every Sunday after church, we would play football at Castro Valley High School. Glenn's father was a coach and my father was a Navy chaplain at the Alameda Naval Base. Dad was serving on the USS HANCOCK, which soon cruised the coast of Vietnam.
Well, Glenn was small and short for football. But what a dynamic player he was. He could play quarterback like Ken Stabler. He and his father would come up with the most inventive plays, like hiking the ball between the quarterback's legs to the running back behind him. It was very difficult to ever know where the ball was going. What fun we had. It was great for us as young kids to play every week with our fathers. The games with Glenn were one of the highlights of my life. I will never forget them.
Nor will I forget his nasal but sweet tenor voice in church choir. He was a lot of fun to know and be with. I learned of his death when I was at Fort Bragg. A friend told me that they were evacuating some injured troops from a difficult position. Small arms and mortar fire was taking its toll on a unit that was ambushed on the ground.
They had gotten off the ground safely, but one of their friend's choppers was hit and crashed behind them. When Glenn looked back, they could see that their friends had survived the crash but were trapped. Glenn and his flight team decided to go back to save them. A noble and heroic effort.
That was always Glenn. David against Goliath. I have missed him for many years. But I still hear him singing and I bet he's throwing a few touchdowns in heaven right now, just as he did when I last saw him.

Time passes quickly when it is gone
But what does it mean to be young or old
For this I am thankful
