  2. So sorry to hear about our dear family friend! She was a gem to all of us and the memories of her will forever live! When I told my Mother, Leona Schlenz she had such sadness in her eyes and said she was such a dear and one of my best friends! I am so glad I was able to take my Mom along with my sister to go see Gladys a year ago on Thsnksgiving. It brought such joy to us to hear them talk about old times. When we left they hugged each other and told each other that they loved each other. How special of a friendship! Prayers to the whole family!
