Miss you Grandma! Love you!
Roberta, Bill, Jamie, & Jason, I am so sorry to hear of Gladys’ passing and to also learn of Bobs’ passing as well. I’ll always remember your Mom’s laugh and her smile. It has been many years since I’ve seen you, but have never forgotten you and your family. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you through this difficult time. May God give you comfort and guidance from this day forward to carry you through. Much love always, Donna Henderson
I am so sorry to learn of Gladys’ passing. She was married to my brother, Virgil Shelton, and was a wonderful wife to him. I have a lot of love and respect for Gladys as well as happy memories of her. She was so kind and cheerful and she always left you feeling better after you had been with her. Our loss of her on this earth is definitely heaven’s gain.
