My family and I went to visit Aunt Gladys in July of 2006 when she was 87 years old. She picked us up at the train station. I got in the front seat and noticed the ballet shoes and Tai Chi equipment on the floorboard. I assumed it belonged it someone else. But no! It was hers and she then told us all about the classes she took. When we got to her residence she informed us that she lived on the 3rd floor. Aunt Gladys then told us we could take the elevator but she would be taking the stairs!! Michael and I at 42 years old would have rather taken the elevator, but up the stairs we went. We couldn't let our 87 year old aunt out do us! My children, Taylor and Colton, thought she was hilarious because she was so frank about everything. But she spoke very highly of her family and my dad, Woodrow Baker, her brother. I know my dad loved her very much. They spoke on the phone quite often because it was important to them to stay in touch. I will always be grateful for the visit and that Aunt Gladys welcomed us so graciously. We all loved her very much.
