To Filomena and Family,

Words nor actions can describe how shocked I am for your loss of James. I can only imagine what you all are going through with suffering this great loss. James was a nice guy who loved his family, friends, and even strangers. I will never forget when his firstborn child arrived into this world. I will also never forget when his next three children were born. Just like he was a nice guy, so is the rest of his family. I will never forget our conversations we had when it came to math especially and life in general. James did not have a mean bone in his body. He had a good heart and raised his kids to turn into successful and happy. He was such an excellent neighbor to have and know. Although you will be deeply missed and loved by everyone, at least you do not have to suffer anymore and your spirit will live within us by the grace and mercy of God. Rest In Peace Mr. James Glackin.

Love And God Bless,
Bilal Ahmad

James was my semi-formal date and friend at Penn State Harrisburg, PA. He was a good man and had a great sense of humor. I wish I had the luck to have stayed in touch with him although I thought of him and our friendshipoften. I know he is now in heaven. You will be missed

James was a friend of my daughter ans son-in-law. Philomena and James have been close friends of Sheri and Mike for decades. Their families were close. I am highly allergic to cats, but adore them and have wanted to adopt on for a very long time. James and Philomena had two cats that were Russian Blues and were purported to be hypoallergenic. I was invited to their home to "try it out". As it turned out, I was not allergic to these cats. James searched and found a Russian Blue kitten for us who is still living in our home today. We really appreciate his going above and beyond to find this kitten for us who has truly enhanced our lives.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. James was a great friend from when I knew him in college, and for 25 years, through our experiences with jobs, marriage, children, and the list goes on. He had a remarkable intellect. He loved to have conversations and trade ideas. He loved education and learning. Some 25 years ago he gave me this poem (a caution about learning from what others have done), and since then when I would think of it, it would remind me of him. I think he would like it if I passed it on to others, especially, the kids, scouts, and others he worked with and educated. It called “The Calf Path” by Sam Foss. https://poets.org/poem/calf-path
In memory of you buddy.

Thank you for sharing this poem with us. It now has special meaning to me too and I will include it in the Troop's scrapbook. James set a path for the boys to follow that I know they will continue on throughout their lives and then their children and grandchildren, etc. will walk this path someday too. James taught them so many life skills but most of all how to step up and be a strong leader and how to love others and make them feel loved just like family. He has changed our lives for the better and will surely be missed. Rest in peace, you will be in our hearts forever.

I called him Glax. He was my teammate, my co-conspirator, my friend, and my kindred spirit in our love for our students. I miss him very much and send his family my deepest prayers for peace. Our world lost a good man this week. .
