I met Glenn for the first time in November 2007 at a parent teacher conference for his son. Like me, Glenn was having some neurological issues of his own. Within a few months, we were both diagnosed with ALS.
The next time I saw Glenn was every Thursday night in April and May 2008 when we attended a Mindfulness Meditation class at Stanford together. The classes were interesting and informative but I looked forward to our weekly pre-class dinner at Lulu’s most of all.
The last time I saw Glenn was at the ALS Clinic at UCSF in July 2009. We talked about getting the two Emmas — his dog, my daughter — together some time in the future. When our respective doctor’s visits were over, we waved good-bye to each other.
I miss my friend Glenn Mills. He was a good man.
