  1. My deepest condolences to Glady’s family. She & I were best pals from when we first met in high school and always kept in touch. There should be more people in the world like Gladys it would be a better place to live. I shall miss her cards & notes to me. God Bless Her. πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»πŸ™πŸ»
