Jimmy:
So sad to hear about your Mom. We loved Gladys, and she was such a dear friend. We have so many memories of our "long" talks after church.
We will miss her, and pray for peace and comfort for you in the days ahead.

She was always so sweet and loved to greet us at church. She went out of her way to speak to us. I always loved her colorful wardrobe, especially on patriotic holidays. Heaven definitely gained an angel with Ms. Gladys . Love to Jimmy and family .

I will surely miss Gladys! I love our hugs and her beautiful smile that makes my day! Jimmy is always by her side, such a wonderful son to his wonderful mom! She is always beautifully dressed and always asks how my family is doing. She is very sweet and friendly. I am sure she is celebrating now in the arms of our Lord with her loved ones around her!

I am deeply sorry for your loss. I pray her family finds comfort in knowing she is in the loving arms of her Savior. Gladyls had the kindest eyes and sweetest smile. I remember her sitting by her beloved son in church. She always dressed lovely and was so dignified, showing such honor to her Lord. May the HolySpirit bless you with peace and joyful memories.

I got to know Gladys at church because of our shared name- her first name and my middle name. I loved how she always was dressed appropriately for every holiday-red, white and blue for patriotic holidays, green on St. Patricks Day, etc. It brightened up the day for me. She will be missed.
