Am so sorry we weren't able to be there - would have liked to have been with the family; Just hit me that they are all gone now, and 'we' the kids are the only ones left...

I would like to offer my condolences to Gladys' family.  I remember her in her younger days as a favorite aunt.  She was always so perky and laughing.  That is how I will always remember her--full of life--and giving one little girl some precious memories.  I will miss her and her smile.  She always called me Susie and I really liked that.  I imagine her in eternity now with Grandma and Grandpa Harding and all her siblings. The four sisters are now all together again.
