Lois and family, Darrell and I will forever miss your Mothers sweet smile and good cookies. Heaven must have needed someone to cook burgers and St. Peter needed help at those Pearly Gates. Miss Gladys we love you, we will always always miss you and each time we walk thru that door expect you to be there. Enjoy the music in Heaven and have a dance or two in between Bingo games!

Aunt Gladys was a very hard working woman and the best cook!
She had a lovely smile that could light up a room. She has blessed so many with her friendship.
Lois, Braden and Ronnie may the wonderful memories of your mother keep you comfort during this time of grief . Love to all.
