I liked Gladys and we finaly met again at the 45th reunion. After the event, on Friday, Lisa Boatright (who drove me from South Carolina) walked back to the hotel so that I could take gladys for coffee and to her appartment. Sunday morning Gladys, Lisa, and I had breakfast together. Due to Lisa's illness I was unable to come to the 50th reunion. I did not post it at that time because it sounded too much like an excuse. I went to update my profile yesterday to indicate Lisa's death and was shocked to find out that Gladys had died just 5 days after Lisa.

Now I am even more sad that I missed the 50th reunion and Gladys. Some things are so final and irreversible.

I had a brief moment to talk with Gladys at the 50yr class reunion but I was rushing past her towards the

exit as I knew my husband had gone to retrieve our car and was waiting at the door*  I wish now I had

taken  a few more minutes to catch up on any news with her when she caught my arm and we briefly

exchanged "hello's and good-bye's" just as quickly* Gladys was a fantastic and fun person to know in

high school and I'm sure she had a lot to share about her life  in the interim* We should never take for granted

there will be another time  to catch up as Phil Whitaker said, "some things are so final and irreversible"*

Gladys, you will be remembered and missed by those of us that had the opportunity to share our

Bradford days with you* Rest in peace*

Cathy & I had a chance to visit with Gladys at the picnic for the 50th, had laughs and then she is gone way to fast, sometimes we just don't take the time because of our busy lives, I am so glad we did talk to Gladys, she was so much fun!!!

My sympathy to all who we have lost, may we all meet again at heavens gate.
