Our love and heartfelt sympathies go out to the family of Ms. Gladys. I have so many fond memories of her and she was always a joy to be around. I especially loved hearing her sing to our Lord. We are so thankful and comforted that she loved her Lord and is now in His presence. We look forward to seeing her again in heaven with our Savior!
