My dearest Gladys. My heart is broken knowing I just can't drive up the road to go see you or call you. But I know your in a much better place. I wish I would of only known you were sick. I would of been there to help and comfort you. Your like a mother to me. You've been in My life since I was a teenager and you've seen the good and bad in my life. You was there like a grandma for my son. Invited me over to show me the Faust/Jeske way of canning your out of the world pickles. Giving me your family's recipes (The famous Faust Kolache Recipe) that I've enjoyed over the years. You were not just a mother figure but my porch swing soda/ beer drinking and running buddy too. We talked for hours about anything and everything. I had some of the most exciting and best times in my life with you. I'll never forget the times I picked you and Rosey up and we headed to the young crowd bar Rockies. I laughed til I cried especially when they thought we were there TOGETHER as a couple. It wasn't good at that particular time but good to know people could feel the bond we had between us. I will always remember your laugh. That laugh like no other!! Until we meet again by sweet dear friend. REST IN PEACE

Dear God,
You had a truly special person join you in your heavenly Kingdom. She truly fulfilled your wishes. She loved and cherished you, her husband, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sister, brothers, friends, and anyone that was brought her way. She lived simply and loved completely. Gladys rarely asked for anything but she always gave of herself. She was selfless, loving, honest and kind. She will be so missed by so many, but I know she is with you shining in all of her glory. We grieve because she is gone but not because of where she went. Gladys and Marvin can now look over their family together. God Please take care of our Gladys. RIP sweet lady.
