A Thoughtful Son on Valentine's Day

This Valentine was one of many treasures found in books that were purchased at an estate auction in the 1980s. I don't know the name of the book where this was found, but did find other two books that Glenn gave to his mother. To Mother From Glenn Xmas 1930 was written inside Years of Grace by Margaret Ayer Barnes and To Mother - Mother's Day 1931 From Glenn was written in Young Man of Manhattan by Katharine Brush. 

Agnes Spence and Emma H. Spence are written in other books came from that estate.  So, a little research indicated that Emma H. Spence was the mother of Robert Glenn Spence. One of his many siblings was Agnes Spence. 

Records indicate that Robert Glenn Spence was born on July 11, 1907 to John Cecil Calhoun Spence and Emma Halstead Spence. He was a graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School in Portsmouth, Virginia and graduated from Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1929 with a degree in business. Glenn married Beulah James Flanagan on November 4, 1933 in Radford, Virginia.  

Robert Glenn Spence died on October 11, 1987. He is buried in Portlock Cemetery  in Portsmouth, Virginia.
