    I met Gladys at Riverside Diversicare, where my mother Audrey resides. When visiting my Mom, I would visit with the other residents. Gladys would always give me the most beautiful smile! I would ask her how she was, and tell her “I love you Miss Gladys”. My Mom had an Aunt Gladys, and that’s how we would remember her name. I will miss seeing her. My prayers are with your family during this difficult time. May God comfort your family.

    I worked with Gladys at Cameron Newspapers. She had a great work ethic and set an example for me to keep going when the going got tough. I was a better person for having known Gladys. Hello Ruth Ann, so sorry for your loss.
