I am saddened by the death of Aunt Gladys. She was a very special lady and a very positive influence in my early life. I have many fond memories of her. I enjoyed visiting with her and my uncle, Arthur, and always felt welcome in their home. Even though I have not seen her in a number of years, I thought of her often and always with fondness. I am glad she is at peace. Cathy Cash Hill
