For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given…Isaiah 9:6
Colin Joshua Glover was born September 23, 2001, in Homewood, AL to Charlie and Melanie Glover. A natural peacemaker and gentle spirit, he was the second born of a set of twins.
At the age of 10, he was baptized and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He was a member of Mt. Joy Baptist Church, under the leadership of Reverend Larry Holman.
Colin was a 2020 graduate of Hewitt-Trussville High School and a current student at Birmingham Southern College, majoring in health sciences. His hope was to become a physical therapist because he truly believed in helping people. In addition to being a student, he was a dedicated basketball player, and as such, was a member of the BSC Panthers basketball team.
Colin had a heart of gold and showed love, affection, and appreciation everywhere he went. His smile lit up a room and his hugs warmed your heart. You would always find a smile on his face no matter the circumstance. He loved his family and friends fiercely and always made space for those in need. He especially loved his twin brother, Cameron, and there was nothing in the world he would not do for him. Colin was also a fighter and worked hard to achieve his goals. Nothing came easy for him, but he never let the challenge deter him. He always put his head down and went to work to accomplish the task.
He leaves to cherish and celebrate his memory his parents, Charlie and Melanie; his twin brother, Cameron; and his sister, Sloan; maternal grandparents, Freeman and Vera Waller; paternal grandparents, Charlie and Evelyn Johnson; aunt and uncle, Vera and Josh Clemons; four first cousins, Nia (9), Naomi (5), Jase (2), and Josiah (2); and a host of extended family and beloved friends. Colin is preceded in death by his uncle, Jeffrey Larry and aunt, Juanita Glover Bogan.
All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. Ecclesiastes 3:20
We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord. 2 Corinthians 5:8. While we will miss Colin forever on this earth, and the hurt we are feeling now is deep and dark, we take comfort in knowing that he knew the Lord and is resting in eternity with the Father. We have no doubt that we will all see him again.
