Aunt Gladys was a special lady to the Wiggins family. She was beautiful & she had such a beautiful spirit. I will miss her-the family reunion will not be the same without her! We will continue our annual tradition. It is a tribute to her & all of the others that are gone on to be with our heavenly father.
