Light a Candle

I just found out that my next door neighbor passed away. I'm shocked and saddened. Although I didn't know Gladys as close as I wished I had now, I can say that she always said hi to me with a contagious smile and always seemed so positive when we had the short conversations that we did. She will be sadly missed. And to Clint my friend, I give you my sincerest condolences. I can only imagine what a loss this is for you but I'm sure God will watch over her in heaven. If you ever need anything at all I am here for you - please come and knock on my door or feel free to call. Your friend and neighbor, Kevin

Gladys was one of the most kind, thoughtful, beautiful and humble women i have been blessed to know. I met Clint and Gladys 8+ years ago. At the time i didnt know just how much they would be part of the lives of my children and I. They spent many weekends watching either my boys baseball tournaments, or my daughters softball tournaments. Clint coached both my boys and daughter while gladys would do the scoreboard. Many times we would go out for dinner afterwards. I will always be grateful for having had a chance to know Gladys and have the wonderful memories that she has left with me and my children. Clint and Gladys have made such a positive impact on my family, we are extremly blessed to have met them both. Clint & Family, i am so sorry for your loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time and the days ahead. she was a beautiful person inside and out. May the wonderful memories give you comfort in those difficult times, and know she will forever be in our hearts . Love, Sherri, Travis,Taylor,& Tommy J
