    Gladys has been in my life for 30years. Her kindness,her supportive volunteer work was amazing. Excepting praise of any kind wasn’t
    necessary. As she said,”It’s the right think to do”
    I marveled at the amount of engery she had. Yes,
    I was jealous. Gladys made a difference in my life.
    I’ll always be forever greatful that I had the privilege of knowing her.
