Wednesday, April 25, 2018To Alan's precious Family, I was deeply saddened to learn of Alan's passing. To each of you, may I extend my heartfelt sympathy. The Glanvilles were dearest neighbors and closest friends to all of us ( the Flynn family). We all lived on Oak Street in Orono. Chris, Jenifer, and I grew up with Alan and Bruce. Wild wonderful Hide and Seek 'til way into the evening, fishing under the bridge and exploring all the nooks and crannies along the river bank. Lots of times we were joined by dear Walter Hall who always had new and exciting adventures to suggest if we were running short of ideas. I have precious memories of our time together on Oak Street. Alan was always fun, very funny, but extremely thoughtful. He was the kind and patient one of us always wonderful with our younger siblings. Alan was a beautiful human being, even as kid. We, the Flynn Kids loved your Dad, your Granddad, and your precious Husband, Betsy. I am so very sorry. Your loss is enormous. I send my love, my prayers, and my friendship. Always, Sally (Flynn) Lounsbury

Friday, March 23, 2018The news of Alan’s passing leaves my heart heavy. I met Alan in June of 1996 for a job interview at CHCS. I was extremely nervous, a new clinician and proceeded to tell Alan that I really didn’t know anything about anything. I labeled myself an existentialist, with a minor in philosophy. The result of the interview………. I started full time the following week! I was situated across the hall from Alan. His door was always open, however, that in no way meant he wanted visitors. He was a lone wolf so of course I followed him around like a puppy in and out of his office, asking unanswerable questions and I was often mid-sentence when I made myself at home in his office. Alan, forever tipping back in his chair nodding and smiling, never gave me the answers I wanted to hear. Alan just seemed to know something the rest of us didn’t. He was brilliantly emotionally intelligent grounded and honest. In the ten plus years I worked with him, I don’t recall him taking a sick day or saying a disparaging remark about anyone. Alan never made a client wait for their appointment which in that setting, was remarkable. But the thing I loved most about Alan was how funny he was, how much joy he brought me and how he and I would play ridiculous tricks on each other. He was funny, he was kind, he was compassion, he was wise. Alan Glanville was indeed the finest man I have ever known. I miss him. My heart goes out to Betsy and his dear family and friends.

Friday, March 23, 2018My condolences to Alan's wife and family. I was his next door neighbor and close buddy as we grew up in Orono. I have such fond memories of the many hours we spent fishing in the river, hanging out in our special hideout along its bank, climbing the maple tree in our yard (we even had street names for all the major branches), sandlot baseball and football, and so much more. I lost track of Alan in later life and am so happy to hear of his large family who I'm sure gave him great joy.

Thursday, March 22, 2018Dear Betsy and all the Glanville Family: I didn't know Alan Glanville well but, I was privileged to have had him as an employee of Community Health and Counseling Services. If Alan had another first name and it would have been DEDICATION. .He was always focused on serving his clients FIRST, LAST AND ALWAYS which given his 40 years of client service at CHCS numbered in the multiple thousands. What a magnificent life Alan has lived !!. Betsy and all of Alan's family how fortunate you have been to live your lives in Alan's love ! God Bless you all and may Alan live in each of your hearts. Death cannot destroy memories that live in the heart. Joe Pickering Jr.

Wednesday, March 21, 2018I was driving home today and had a long train of thought about Alan and all the members of his family. I recalled the enjoyment I had of visiting he and Margaret and the four kids. Also the great pleasure I used to experience meeting regularly at Lum"s in the 70"s and Alan's wry sense of humor. I recalled Betsy and laughed to myself realizing, after having studied Italian for a while, that her maiden name meant "Soldiers." This was all before I got home and was very saddened when by chance I saw Alan's obituary. I would have loved to see Alan again and I send my condolences to all who loved him. He was a unique, complicated and wonderfully compassionate man. Blessings to all of you. Frank Luongo
