Thank you to Rob Garrison for the generous prize. Here is the story of the Glynns: Her Voice by Michael Glynn My wife Jasclyn and I met in college at Chicago’s Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). It was January of 1980, I was a third year undergraduate studying architecture, Jasclyn was in her second year, an engineering/business major. On-campus living accommodations for undergrads were dormitories, my room at the very end of a lengthy hallway. Bland walls of painted concrete block, a white plaster ceiling, and a floor of beigey colored vinyl tiles defined the hallway, making it a perfect echo chamber. Back then, most of my collegiate architecture friends shared similar short term life plans; graduate, find employment, enjoy single life along the way, and postpone thoughts of commitment or marriage until your thirties. Our “boys club” had a pact and I was “all in” until the evening I heard her voice. It was a Tuesday night about an hour or so after dinner while in my room, the doorway wide open. Quite unexpectedly, coming from what seemed to be the distant end of that endless hallway I began to faintly hear a voice — one I had never heard before. It was a joyous and gentle melody, a sincere Jasclyn and Michael Glynn, of Wilmette, met while studying at Chicago’s Illinois Institute of Technology. Photo submitted and warm breeze on that cold January night, and it seemed to be heading my way. Life was about to change. Just a few heartbeats later I eased over toward the open doorway, quietly peaked down that hall and learned “the voice” belonged to a stunning beauty with an incredible smile. I was awestruck, so much so that by the time she reached my doorway — the exact time I needed to say hello or anything for that matter, I couldn’t even speak. In an instant, she smiled, gracefully passed by, and was gone. After some composure rediscovery instinct took over and for a budding young architect that meant heading right to the drawing table to work out a PLAN. So, Jasclyn and I managed to “accidentally” meet formally the following day. We talked forever and soon agreed to rearranged our elective course and cafeteria schedules to coincide. About a month later, on Valentine’s Day she kissed me for the first time on the right cheek. We have been inseparable since. Several Novembers later we were married and 32 more have quickly passed. Along the way two spectacular boys joined us for our ride and today we have our own “boys club,” so blessed to hear that lovely voice every day and it always makes us smile. dance From Page 3 princesses and you can see the fun and excitement radiating from both of them.” In usual fashion, the event was once again sold out with 250 dads and daughters who appreciated a night to have a little fun together, away from the distractions at home. Glenview’s Scott Marwick and his daughter, Lucy, have attended for the past three years, enjoying their night out on the town. “This is a special night that we look forward too each year,” Scott Marwick said. “It is a night we can leave the brothers and sisters behind and enjoy a night, just the two of us.” This year, Thomas also added a new twist to the evening by incorporating a few fun activity worksheets for dads and daughters to get to know one another better. A pile of glow necklaces also attracted the girls, who wore as many at one time, lighting up the dance floor. Thomas also gave thanks to their wonderful and gracious hosts. “Michigan Shores once again blew me away by their excellent service and beautiful venue. I cannot thank them enough for the opportunity to host our dance here again,” Thomas said. After working up an appetite on the dance floor, dads and daughters took an ice cream break and received a professional photo shoot, only to once again let loose on the dance floor just like Chris McLaughlin and his 6-year-old daughter, Grace. “I learn all my moves from Grace,” McLaughlin said. For Isabelle and Bob Laude, the night was about finding some quality time to build memories. “I love dancing and being here with my dad.” Isabelle Laude said. “I love the nice night out with my very special girl,” Bob Laude said. wilmette the wilmette beacon | February 16, 2017 | 7 Fall in Love 2432 MEADOW, WILMETTE 67 INDIAN HILL, WINNETKA 606 GREENLEAF, WILMETTE 714 ELMWOOD, WILMETTE 832 SHERIDAN, WILMETTE 1920 THORNWOOD, WILMETTE 1601 ELMWOOD, WILMETTE 110 GARRISON, WILMETTE
