I was about 7 yrs, old when Gladene married my brother, whom I dearly loved. Yes, I was annoyed because she took him away from me. But I learned to love Gladene as well and she gave me my wonderful family of nieces and nephews. Sympathy and much love to each and everyone of you, and of course hugs..Aunt Liz and Great Aunt Liz.. Sorry I fell on Friday morning and not able to travel on Sunday. Nothing broken just very sore. Hope to see you all on July 6th at the reunion. Love Aunt Liz Tuttle.

When my mom passed the news along to me today (Sunday) the first thing I pictured was your mom's smile. I don't recall a time in my life ever seeing her or Jim (for that matter) without one. How blessed my life was growing up with such a wonderful lady in my church family. I heard from her often throughout the first years of my military career, always a Christmas card and even then a smile came across in her signature. May you each find peace at this time and know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. With sincere love and long-distance hugs. Patty and family
