Time and distance, sadly, precluded me from knowing my Aunt Marie better. My pleasant memories of Aunt Marie are those of a warm and loving lady.

Gladys May my dearest friend from childhood, Madelyn, George, and Allan heart is heavy with grief for your family as your Mom was a very sweet, kind, and giving lady.
Her smile lite up the darkest of rooms...and her calming voice when she spoke reminds me of an angel sent from heaven...always so gentle, loving and caring.
I will never forget the wonderful gift both Mrs. Bruhm and Gladys May made for me on my wedding day. I cherish it and when I look at it every time I make my bed I can see in my mind the both of you working so hard on it getting it ready to present it on my wedding day.
Love Gail Parker
