    To our dear friend “Glad”. How we learned to love you living next door to you for 26 years! We never will forget your constant sweet smile and little giggle that always warmed our hearts. You always personified goodness and kindness to us. We will never forget you. We talked about so many topics of interest as we would sit in the back admiring the beautiful wooded area we shared or sit in the front rocking ourselves into restful moments as time went on. We love you, Glad, and will miss you terribly. You now know the fullness of heaven and our Creator. Rest in eternal peace forever……………..We extend our heartfelt condolences to Jim and the Mankowski family. Vic and Joan Ottolino
