I loved Aunt Gladys with all my heart. She was so sweet to me over the years, freely giving love, advice, Champagne and laughs. The life she lived is a testament to her fierce independence, dogged perserverence and unfailing sense of humor. She's finally home with Neville, Tinkerbell and Peaches. I lost a good friend and mentor, but will always cherish the time we had together.

We will always remember Q.T. as a fascinating and fun woman. We wish she had written her memoirs. We will miss you!

The grand dame of all has left us. Her elegance, wit, and feminity were a model for me all of my life. Her 105 years with us will long be remembered. May she rest in peace and now be united with all those who have gone before her. MLM
