    There are so many good stories to tell about her and my mother. Even though they were two years apart they were like twins. On the weekends If you saw one or the other, the other would be close. They both had twin Poodles on died one day after the other. All you had to do is to get them laughing and it was on then. Many a memory with these 2 beautiful ladies.See you again one day, Love you both very much Aunt "Gladass", and my mother Hazel "Cottontop" Godwin.

    May you cherish your many fond memories of Gladys. May you find comfort in knowing that Jehovah, the God of all comfort, has promised to end sickness and death forever, Revelation 21:4, Isaiah 33:24. He will also restore life to all who are sleeping in death who he remembers by means of the resurrection, Isaiah 26:19, Acts 24:15. May your faith in God and his son Jesus Christ comfort and sustain you during your time of sorrow. Please accept my condolences.
