Dear Mrs. Gladys,
Wished you were able to see this message as you were one of my highlights on visiting Michigan for the very first time this past May. You are very witty and funny as well. I can see where Michael got his humor. Thank you for such memories and to show me the values and how you have touched others lives. You are very kind, forgiving, loving, and not judgmental. I enjoyed looking at all the photos and photo albums you have kept, they're spectacular. We also found it very funny you even wrote your recipe on a prescription paper. Thank you again for the opportunity of meeting such a kind and sweet soul! You will not be forgotten as you will keep watching over everyone. God bless!
