    It was with great sadness that I read that your Mom had passed away. I would see her more often since she had moved to the Manor. Gladys was a great part of our seniors here at the Nor-Dun Centre when she lived at Millview Apartments. Thinking of you!

    My condolences to the entire Gates family. Although I never knew Gladys, I see her warmth and love in her picture and that of her son, Randy. Losing a mother is never easy, but I trust you all are comforted by the knowledge she is now at peace. With love and in sympathy,
