    Dear Family & Friends of Gladys Irene Winans,
    I am so sorry for your loss of such a beautiful person in
    Gladys Winans. I so enjoyed spending time with her-
    watching game shows, talking to her about her family
    history, massaging her feet, & providing her comfort.
    Gladys had the sweetest laugh.
    Gladys & I enjoyed the same baseball team-the TWINS.
    (I’m happy to tell you, Gladys, they are top in their division.) Rest in Peace, Gladys. I love you, Diane
