My mom called me yesterday to tell me of Gladys's passing and I was deeply saddened by the news. Though I only knew Gladys for a short period of time, I can attest to the wonderful person that she was and how she could brighten anyone's day with her smile and love for singing. She was a pleasure to get to know and I take comfort knowing that she will find peace in heaven with her husband, who she loved deeply. My prayers and sympathies go out to her family and friends in this difficult time.
So sorry for your loss.

Dear Carole,Marilyn & family. We are so sorry for the loss of your dear sweet Gladys. She told me once that she wanted to be with her sweetheart so much. Well now she's with him. I'm sure she will be happy in heaven. On Sunday morning we prayed for her, at Presbytery. I found out yesterday that she had gone to her Maker. Vickie & I loved her so much. She was so special to us both. She had such a beautiful soul. Our prayers go out to all of you. Gladys you can go home now & be happy in Heaven.
