Peter said, “That’s where he built his dream house. The day after he finished that house and moved into it, she filed for divorce. The two of them were back together again. He installed a little gate in the back of his property so she could come from her house over to his. She would spend a lot of time at my dad’s house sitting by the pool. They were constantly together.”
Sadly, Rita died in 1987 and Glenn died in 2006. Perhaps now they are together!
