I am so glad that my wife Ella and I became good friends with Gladys. She was always kind, considerate, and so full of life. One of the best memories we shared was during a visit with us here in St. Charles, MO. We took her to where the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers come together. Just to see it all visually. Who knew that she would want an adventure!! I was able to get out on some rocks so I could get a picture or her with one foot in the Missouri and the other in the Mississippi.

My wife Ella and Gladys called each other often. It is so sad that they both are gone now. But never forgotten.

Our thoughts are with the family. My mother, Roberta Hedges Houston, is not able to attend the funeral but wanted you to know she would be thinking of everyone! We always enjoyed Gladys's visits to our Hedges Cousins reunion at my house.

We have fond memories of Gladys. She was a very nice lady who aged so gracefully. So sad to hear of her passing, but glad she was blessed with a long life. She is at rest with the Lord in Heaven now and we are sure she is very happy there. Our deepest condolences to her daughter and her family.

Dear Mary,
I am so sorry for your loss. It has been great to catch up with you all and be a part of her birthday last year. The days ahead will be hard but remember she showed us all how to live and that is to live for the Lord. Joy comes in the morning.
Your parents were such a blessing to my parents. They all worked so hard to build the Assembly of God church on Emmons Street. Your dad and my dad were buddies and I am grateful to have known them.
God's riches blessings to you and your family.

Bob Tharp
