When Fred and I were first moving to Florida, I came down on my own alone ahead of time to set up the house. I purchased some bedroom furniture online but was not going to be able to pick it up and bring it home alone. Glenn had never met his sister in law, but was still willing to come over and go with me to pick up the furniture and bring it back. From them on he called me sis and we joined together to pick on Fred whenever we could. I'll miss that.
