In Loving Memory
Gladys was the strongest lady you could ever know. She was the last of her immediate family. Her concern was always others and never herself. Always the center of our world, she was our refuge and comfort. Her love was unconditional and eternal. Her understanding was limitless.
Gladys loved sewing. She created the most beautiful quilts ever. The shirts she made for all of us were really works of art. Her favorite sweatshirt read "I Keep My Family In Stitches".
Her husband, Warren, once told us "Your life is choices, make the right ones and it will be okay." We think the best choice ever made was him marrying this woman and creating this family.
We can't say goodbye, we'll just make it "see you later". If she could tell us now she would say "Don't make a fuss."
I hope it is true that a women can die and yet not only live in others but give them life , and not only life, but that great consciousness of life. My Mom has enriched life to so many I am proud to say. We will always be together. LOVE YOU MOM!

Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.
Rest In Peace Granny...
Thank you for all the words of wisdom and encouragement, all the shared laughs over a cup of coffee and slice of pie. I love you Granny.

My lasting memory will be the look on her face when we drove through town in her Father’s ‘51 Ford pick-up.
