Aunt Gladys was a loving and thoughtful person. She did so many things for others! From her beautiful handmade quilts to the Christmas decorations she crocheted and sent inside her Christmas cards, Aunt Gladys' gifts brought many smiles to me and my family. Nobody wrote a letter like Aunt Gladys--she filled every line and more. I remember all the delicious foods she made and how much she enjoyed her trips to Rhode Island with her family. Her heart touched many people and she will be missed! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
