Dear family and friends of Gladys.

It is indeed a tough time for you. We will be mourning the passing of such a fantastic person. Among so many other way Gladys will be remembered as a true global citizen. She lovingly continued throughout the years to share an interest and support of the little church as it provided for children and families locally and worldwide.

With thoughts and prayers as she's 'leaning on the Everlasting Arms.' : )

My heartfelt condolences to all of the family.I will never forget my sweet cousin " Gladoila". We had so many happy and wonderful times in each others the music rang out as we all played our instruments and sang.No one will EVER be able to cook and bake like you did. You were so generous in sharing your recipes with us but somehow, they just never tasted the same as when you made them. You were the kindest, most gentle, giving and loving person I have ever known.I was blessed to be able to share 3 hrs with you just a week ago, share our memories, we had some laughs and shared our memories. I will always remember my sweet "Gladolia" and you will live in my heart and memories forever. I promised you when I left last weekend that someday we would meet again and you would do the "Shimmy", only you could do that dance that made me laugh everytime.
