In a June 18 Facebook post, Glen’s daughter and aspiring country artist Ashley Campbell shared a black and white picture of her dear father, her hands cradling his face in a loving embrace. “Happy Father’s Day,” she wrote in the post. “I wish you could know how many people are asking about you and praying for you. I wish you could know that your new album is bringing joy to people all over the world right now. I wish you were here. I can hug you and hold you but I can’t know for sure where you are. I love you dad. I’m here for you. Thank you for giving me everything.”
