I was so sad to hear of Gladys' passing. Please accept my condolences. I knew Gladys when I was a member of the Kempsville Woman's Club. She was so kind, genteel and always elegantly dressed. I loved talking clothes with her. She had an indomitable and positive spirit. I know she must have been a dear mother and grandmother. What a great long life she had! May she rest in peace .
