Gladys was my beloved neighbor for 43 years. We watched our precious children play together and mature into caring adults. We shared sorrows and gladness. I will miss her because just knowing she was there when I was alone was a comfort.

Mark and Cyndi, so sorry to learn of Aunt Gladys passing, she always had a smile and kind word when ever you saw her, that is how I will remember her. As I became a member of the Dickard family 60 some years ago she was so kind and sweet and told me she was glad I was a part of the family because she loved Don like a brother. Although I thought she was so shy she was also very faithful to her family. Please know you will be in our prayers and thoughts. Don and Laura Howard

Always know there are many friends and family that love her and you and share in your grief. My prayer is that God will give you peace and comfort you during the difficult days ahead.
Love forever,
