I am saddened to learn of Gladys' death. We have not seen each other in decades, however I remember her from our involvement in Methodist youth events as adolescents. That involvement in addition to both of us being named Gladys gave us a lasting connection. My condolences to her family. "Memories will strengthen you. Love will bring you peace".
