I'll always remember Gladys hugging me at the Friedensaals Mother-Daughter Tea and telling me how glad she was to see me. What a tragic end to a beautiful love filled life. My condolences to the family. May God comfort you in your loss.

We met Gladys on election day of November 2008 at the Springfield Township Office Building. We were so happy to be able to help her that day and were impressed with her spunk and her courage. Please know how very sorry we are for your loss. We only knew Gladys a short time but we are happy that we did. If we can help you in any way, don't hesitate to call us.
