    Are thoughts are with you Don and your family with the lose of Gladys. It is a hard time for both our familiesright now. My dad Don and myself send our prayers and love to your family.

  • A.G. and Sandy Fiddler says:

    We only knew you for a short time. But in that time you did become MOM!

  • Ella Gueldner says:

    What a trooper. Many memories of time spend together. Outstanding testimony for her Lord. Great friend, cousin, cook, & etc.

  • Perry says:

    When I think of Gladys; I remember her smile; the twinkle in her eye, the sheer radiance of her enthusiasm for the moment, for her loved ones, for her closeness with God.

    An amazing wife, friend and partner to Don; their relationship; well whatever it is that makes a relationship loving, supportive and wonderful; they created in an abundance.

    A loving mother to her own; and to many. A friend to those in need, and to many that just happened to come into her life.

    I can’t begin to imagine the sense of loss Don and family feels at this time; but I hope you can find strength and comfort while reflecting on Gladys’ – Mom’s relationship with God, and in knowing she is within his kingdom, and is enveloped in divine love and she is with Donald and many others who welcome her.

    Gladys is in all our prayers; as is Don, family and friends. We pray the love of God, and the comfort and support of family and friends will help in adjusting to the physical loss of Gladys; while ever knowing Gladys lives on in your heart, and in cherished memories.

    I will always be thankful for the moments shared with Gladys; a brilliant caring person and so much more… may love and fellowship be comforting and reassuring at this time of profound loss; may remembrance of Gladys’ love and joy help you in celebrating her life…
