I was so sorry to hear of Gladys' passing. Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss. I worked with Gladys at the SNFs in Marysville and Yuba City. She was an AMAZING woman. I will never forget her guidance, wisdom, determination, patience, nursing competence, management skills or her love & dedication to her family. Years ago, when Microsoft "Word" came out, she gave me some tips on how to recover things unintentionally erased. I use that tip to this day! Gladys will be greatly missed. Sincerely, Aleta Harvey (Pharmacist)
