Not sure what to say?

Gladys was also preceded in death by her beautiful granddaughter, Shaunna Marie Hinkley.

I have such fond memories growing up next door to Gladys and her family. We all played board games on her front porch and she made the best chocolate cookies. I will always cherish these memories.
