My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I work at St. Lucas Care Center where Gladys lived and I will remember her for a lot of things. She loved her Pepsi and chocolate chip cookies. She was always worried about her purse and always wanted to pay us with her "money," which were her coupons that she kept in her wallet from years ago. She was a very interesting lady to talk to and a great sense of humor. She will sadly be missed!!

Oh what fond memories we have of your mom, it saddened me so when I saw her picture, what a wonderful lady she was. We enjoyed living by your mom and dad on 66th Ave. which seems like so many years ago, but you know one never forgets wonderful neighbors. Our deepest sympathy to you Greg and Cindy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. I still make those good chocolate drop no bake cookies your mom made and I think of her each time I do. Take Care, Myron and Erna Quam
