Glenn, 43, was killed Nov. 20 in a single-vehicle rollover crash in Irving that also injured his fiancée. Verina LeGrand. She later spoke to NBC 5, saying Glenn was an amazing father to his seven children and that he was the love of her life.
Glenn's life story not only included being a marquee player in the NFL, he overcame incredible adversity as a foster child to before becoming a walk-on athlete at Ohio State and being drafted by the Patriots.
Last week, several of Glenn's seven children spoke to NBC 5 about their father saying he was their hero and that they'll cherish the time they had together.
The cause of the crash has not yet been confirmed and the investigation is ongoing.
