Glady was likely my mothers dearest friend. As a child I remember Glady as very warm and kind. She always had a positive attitude and I always enjoyed visiting at her house or when the family would stay at our cabin. So many memories. Many condolences to Craig and family.

I knew Gladys from The Center. She always had such an uplifting optimistic attitude. Here was this 80 year old lady coming in every Thursday at about 4 a.m. to put sprinkles on the donuts. She was such a delight to know. I really missed not seeing her when she decided it was something she could no longer do. Gladys was an inspiration!!
