Looking through all the photos brought back some fond memories of my childhood in Wichita. Gladys was an amazing mother and wife. And....I will never forget the time she made me eat a tomato on my hamburger. To this day, I don't eat a hamburger without a tomato! My heartfelt sorrow to Myron, Maureen, and Kevin and their families.

May God guide you all through this time, with his grace.
