We loved her so much!

Thinking of the family over the loss of sweet "Granny"

My sweet Granny...
I think you knew how special you are to so many people. You loved everyone and brought so much joy to so many lives. I'll never forget growing up every Sunday at your house. Digging in the dirt with spoons, chasing chickens, and petting Lala. You're part of why I am who I am today. I'll cherish my memories with you and your words of wisdom ring true. You did what you came to do. Rest easy.
I'll love you forever

I only knew Gladys for a short time but she brought joy to my heart she will be deeply missed

Me and Liz was her grand children we love her we miss her and she's in better place to where she ain't suffering or in pain no more I love you Grandma

Sincere condolences to her family...
