    “As long as I can hear your voice…”nnI love you Mom, and will miss you so very much, but I’ll always be able to hear your voice. I know God blessed you deeply, and you are at peace.

    Although I haven’t had much communication with my Aunt Gladys over all the years, I think of her fondly everytime I open the McCalls Cookbook she gave me for my wedding shower noting her best wishes and dated August 22, 1967. I still refer to that cookbook 44 years later. I’m sorry I didn’t get to visit her before she passed but will always remember her kindness. My condolences to the family.
