Ms. Gladis you will truly be missed. You were a real friend to my mama, and you have left her with many good memories. I remember you always riding with mama out to my house and I would ask y'all "Where you two fast old ladies going?". Y'all would just look at each other and smile. Thank you for leaving mama those memories, because I know there will be days that she wants to come see you and can't, but she can remember the times y'all shared. R.I.H.
