Sorry to hear about aunt Gladys. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend but I wanted to send condolences to the family. Aunt Gladys was such a nice woman, I can still remember the day when her and uncle Neil got married. They came over to my mom and dad's house right afterwards and they were so happy...... she knew Laura was sick, so she would periodically call and check on her and the kids to see how everyone was doing. I really love that woman and I'm gonna miss her....... love Larry and the kids
