Boe Family, You have our deepest sympathy. We as neighbors have many memories of good times with Gladsey and Paul. Did visit with Gladsey a while back and she sat with us at a funeral service at the home. It was a great visit and we chatted for a long time. One thing we will always have is the good times.
