It is difficult to know what to say when one as dear as a mother psses on; I know, I lost my mother at age 92. In the case of Gladys I am sure you take comfort in knowing that she is now in the arms of her loving husband and the Lord Jesus. What a comfort!!
My first memory of Gladys was as a teen when I was bold enough to ask her daughter to a movie. Yvone was ready and waiting when I arrived as were her parents. I was greeted warmly and, as I recall was admonished not to keep her out gto late. I recall that Barbara was there and looking quite pretty for a kid. Since then i have known the family through the church and have had a number of pleasant visits with Gladys. It was my honor though unpleasant task to officiate at the funeral of Gladys’ grandson Kenny New when he passed away as a young man. I love you all and pray for your comfort in this time of greatest loss.
There are so many wonderful things I remember about Grandma; I consider it an honor to have had her so close to me. I love you Grandma!
Grandma was the perfect Grandmother. She was sweet, loving, caring and pretty. She was always there for my brother and me. I love her so much. Her and Grandpa were a big part of my life when I was growing up and memories of them are such a comfort now. She was a big influence when it came to my salvation and I am comforted by the fact that she is with the Lord and Grandpa as well.
