  3. Aunt Gladys we will miss you so much, but know that you are with all of your family. Rest in Heaven. One day we will all be together again. Love you.

  4. My dearest great Aunt Gladys… You are truly missed. My mind has been flooded with sweet memories of years long past. I’ll never forget how you always opened your home to us when we were passing by, the few times my Mom and Dad would pack all of us kids in the mini van and drive us down to Indy to sing gospel songs with you and Uncle Elmer at the nursing homes… I cherish the memories at the family reunions every year growing up, and you were always one of the highlights of the trips, I just couldn’t wait to get a hug from my Aunt Gladys!… You taught me through example how to live a life doing for others. Your doors were never closed, and you welcomed everyone with open arms. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all you have done and for sharing your life with us. May you rest in everlasting peace…
    Love, Deborah Irvin (Olson)

  5. I loved Gladys for the way she never treated anyone with disrespect. I can still hear her beautiful voice singing in church.

  6. I miss you so much momma! Your smile, your laughter, your eyes, your love, your hugs.I miss watching Hallmark with you. I miss the unconditional love you had for everyone! You welcomed those into your heart who didn’t have a momma, or a grandma. I cherish each and every moment we had these last few months. I enjoyed every moment. I just wish sometimes I had another moment to hug you tight, and tell you I love you again.

  7. All you have done for everyone will never be forgotten, I love you bunches Mamaw. Rest easy and give Papaw a huge hug for me. I know you’ll be watching over all of us.
