We may live in Tahlequah OK but we still remember our old friends and still have sympathy for the family Gladys has left William @ Sara( Mickie) Hix, February 23, 2008 Dear Daisy & Louis, You have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother. She was a special lady and I have many great memories of her and her hospitality at parties and dinners in her home. Noticing that she lived to the ripe old oage of 94 reminds me of my own mother, Helen, she lived to 94 and would have been 95 if she had lived 24 more days. It is tough to lose them but we would not want them back in the their latest condition. This is something we all have to face some day and we should be ready. I hope I will see you at the Celina reunion in June, it is so much fun to go and look at the old people there. Now that doesn't include you or I just the others. I see where Celina is building still another High School and it is on the hill where I started to school and was there through the fourth grade. Now that you have my email address you can contact me. I come to the cemetary sometime and do an occasional funeral there since I work for a funeral home in Denton. Our regards in your time of loss. Jack & Ginny Manes Jack and Ginny Manes, February 23, 2008 I don't have memories of Aunt gladys as a child-- I was too busy playing with Bill, Phyllis and Jerry. As I grew into adulthood I always admired and respected her strength. Aunt Gladys was as strong a person as I've ever met. Also, the way she utilized each moment of the day constructively. Just to be blessed with a portion of these two gifts God gave her! Mary /Ellen Parkey, February 22, 2008 There are no words to express the love and fond memories of Gladys. 4th of July can't pass without the best of memories of the celebrations at the lake as a child, with Mom and Dad(Carmon and Nell Cave) and then as an adult with my children. I am so glad that our Cave family had the reunions when I was a child so I had the priveledge of spending time with Ted and Gladys and their family. My thoughts, prayers and love are with you all. Beverly Brown-Hebert, February 22, 2008 I will always remember the summer vacations with Grandpa & Granny (George & Willie) I Spent at Ted & Gladys's house. Driving the tracter with Ted, swimming and fishing at the lake and the food at Gladys's house. I will miss her dearly. Larry Sparks, February 21, 2008 Space will not allow all the fond memories I have of my Aunt Gladys, here are a few. The delious food from pickles, lemon pie,home made hominy.All the beautiful clothes she sewed for me and my girls. She never scolded Daisy and I for all the messes we made when we were together. I can now still her voice as said our names and the way she said Ted. She was a beautiful person inside and out. As I grow into my senior years I still try to pattern a lot of things I do after My Aunt Gladys. My prayers and thoughts are with you Daisy and Louis and all the many loved ones and friends. Wish I could be there. Love Jennie Jennie Ruth Sparks, February 21, 2008 I will always remember the wonderful fried pies. Of course, apricot was my favorite. With the Perry family, how could you not remember the food. Our prayers are with you during this time of loss and hope that you will cherish all the wonderful memories. Love ya, Diana, Cary, Mandy & Leslie Diana Mayo, February 21, 2008 I will always remember the wonderful matching dresses that Aunt Gladys made for me and Jane. Gladys always had a ready smile and was so full of fun. There were always goodies to eat and fun to be had at Aunt Glady's home. Sharon Kay McInnes, February 21, 2008 Gladys was always everyone's favorite because of the time that both she and Uncle Ted devoted to the kids. While others sat around the sun room talking, Ted would round up the kids, catch horses,or take us to the lake. We would get hungry but we were afraid to mention it for fear we would have to go home. Gladys would rescue us with sandwiches and goodies from her kitchen. When I visited, I got to live the "June and Warren Cleaver" lifestyle. What wonderful memories. Howard Howard Perry, February 21, 2008 To the family, I know she will be missed as Ted is. I spent many weeks every summer w/my g-parents (Charlie & Bert Cawthon)and for several yrs. the 4th of july picnic was @ Ted & Gladys' lake. Oh the food and fun we had, but even when there was no picnic, grandma Bert andI would stop and visit Gladys(if she was out side)Like you, I still hear Grandma call cousin Gareeeeeey like only a g-mom can. So pull those memories out often and take time to reminess!!! That's why we make memories, Diann& son Jasen Loftice Vivian Diann Cawthon Loftice Braudrick, February 21, 2008
