  4. Gladys was a very special person. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I used to visit her once a year and bring garden vegetables and tomato juice. How we met is she and my father were close friends during the time of my father’s passing. She was an Angel who came and helped out, for especially me as I had a job and a family to raise. She was there when I couldn’t be keeping my father company and helping out. There will always be a special place in my heart for her! I am sorry for the families loss and we had not a chance to meet. She talked of you often in our yearly meetings. She resembled my mother in looks who passed years before. May God bless her with all the things she deserved.
