This made my heart sad to hear the news. I knew Gladys during most of all my childhood and her and her family was very special to me. I have a lot of fond memories of them.
RIP my dear sweet friend! Hugs and prayers go out to the family!

Aunt Gladys was a sweet woman. Cooked wonderful meals and was fun to be around. I will always cherish our time together along with my late Uncle David (my mom's brother). Love you Aunt Gladys. Ron Powell
