Aunt Gladys was truly a wonderful woman. She was my "borrowed" Aunt as she was the best friend of my mother. Gladys loved us and thought of us as her nieces. She always saw the good in everyone and was a positive role model in my life growing up. It was due to her influence that I pushed myself in all areas of my life. In the later years due to the distance between our homes, we had a wonderful telephone relationship. She loved her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was very proud of them and always talked about them and their accomplishments. I will miss talking to her. She was such a beautiful woman both inside and out. Although we lost her on earth, her friends and family that have gone before her most certainly have welcomed her into heaven.
