What a great friend Gladys was! Great memories at KMS! We had lots of laughs, had a good time when visiting each other, and always enjoyed eating out! She will always be in my heart. So happy she got to see and hold Colton, her face lit up just at the mention of his name! She is now in the arms of Jesus not suffering any more!

Mrs. Wright always had a smile on her face and a kind heart. There was no doubt that her family was her main focus. I am so happy that she was able to see and hold Colton. Her eyes would light up with love every time she saw him. Such a gentle soul.

Gladys was a very sweet lady. Her soul is at peace and she is no longer struggling in a broken body. Hugs, love and prayers to the family.
