Aunt Gladys, I will always cherish the memories of you coming out for every occasion and bringing cakes or other goodies. My favorite time of the year was when you would bring out your famous divinity fudge. You will truly be missed with your warming smile and big hugs and kisses. You are now in paradise with Uncle Jack and your favorite nephew Dean, along with your many other loved ones praising God. Until we see each other again in Heaven with our Lord, you will be missed everyday.
With lots of love from your niece,
Pam and Andy Oliveira (Grabow)
