Judy, Not only Mom’s best friend, Gladys was more like a member of our family group. She was almost always with us for holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions. We had many good times together. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May she rest in peace.

Dear Judy, Your mother was a gift to all of us. While we were blessed to have Gladys for 99 years - it never seems long enough. Gladys was a very special lady- a hard worker who was loyal and dedicated to her family and friends. She filled our hearts with beauty, joy, and grace. We have so many wonderful memories- her love of baking especially her babka and manicotti, her love of shopping for shoes, her love of reading and visiting the library, the enjoyment she received from playing cards, eating jelly donuts, seeing the first robin of spring, or playing an April Fool's joke. We shared many special times together- Thanksgiving, Mother's Day, and birthdays. My mom and Gladys had a true and lasting friendship for over 60 years- visiting each other, talking on the phone for hours, and brightening each other's days. We celebrate you our dear Gladys, my Godmother. We know you and the love of your life, Charlie, are happy to be reunited in heaven. We love you and you will live in our hearts forever. GOD BLESS.
