    After 40 years, it was a pleasure to visit with and get reacquainted with Aunt Vernell, a few years ago. I definitely enjoyed the time with her. She will be missed by many people. Hugs to Connie, Sharon, Randy and Sheila.

    Mrs. Gladies, I'm sorry that I never had the opportunity to meet you. I have been friends with Sharon ever since she lived in Immokalee and we worked at the bank together. In viewing your memorial video, I can see where Sharon inherited her personality! Which is why I love her. I know you will be missed by your family and friends. But I know that Mr. Neville and others were there with open arms too meet you on the other side. May you rest in eternal peace. Sending my Love & Blessings to Sharon and all the family. (I feel like I know most of you.)
