We loved seeing Gladys at several of Alyssa's and Larry's birthday dinners. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a sharp wit. What a wonderful blessing that Gladys had a husband who adored her, and she and John had such a long and full marriage! Our prayers are with you, John, Larry, Elizabeth, and Alyssa, and all of the family.
