Josh and Randy,
So sorry to hear of Aunt Gladys’ passing.I remember our visits fondly and know she is at peace with her family in heaven.

Josh– please accept our deepest condolences from your family in the States. To us, your grandmother was a constant source of support for our Mom, Doris, in her later years. I remember well her dancing with Uncle Don, her wry sense of humor, gleeful smile, and the twinkle in her eye. May she be at peace and may you be embraced by her life and charms.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to you at this sad time. Nobody is ever really ready to say goodbye to a loved one. Your grandmother was a sweet lady.

I am so sorry for your loss but I hope you take comfort that your grandmother is at peace now in her eternal home.
When I would visit Gladys she would always talk about you. She loved you and was so very, very proud of you.
I could see the light in her eyes when she spoke your name. God bless….

Dear Josh and Randy A sad day for us but we should be happy for aunt Gladys. She has been waiting for today to be with Don, Dave, Jeremy, my dad Charles and families. God has promised us a place with Him and she has now claimed her place. I fondly remember my visits with aunt Gladys. With peace and love, Graeme, Shirley, Kim, Chris & Daniel

Josh, so sorry for your loss. She was the last of her generation. I first met your nan in the Fall of 1972 when your dad and I were taking karate classes together after high school. Your nan and I have been friends ever since. She was like a second “mom” to me. When your dad enlisted in the Canadian Forces in 1977 and left home, your nan said to your pop, we will no longer see our dear friend (Gordon) again with our son being away in the milItary. Well little did she know that I would prove her wrong for the next 40+ years. There have been many visits and cups of tea with your nan (and pop) over the years. I do cherish the memories. She will be missed!

Randy so sorry for the passing of your Aunt Gladys. I know you will miss her dearly. She often talked to me about how grateful she was that you have always being there for her and for the times you invited her to your home. She adored you.

Josh, so sorry for the passing of your nan who I know loved you dearly. She is happy to be reunited with your mom, dad and brother and her husband Don. You have many angels watching over you tonight Josh.

I grew up on the corner of Haggerty Hill, John and Dunford Streets, Dave was childhood friend who we lost far to soon. and now Mrs. C. I have great memories of those mid to late 60’s with the Costello family, a sad day indeed. RIP Mrs. C.

Josh, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I can only imagine how excited Jeremy is to be with his Grandmother!!! I love you in bunches. xoxo

Gladys’s prayer was finally answered today when the good Lord finally took her home to join all her family gone on before her. I feel certain there is great rejoicing in the heavens. Glad was always a very family oriented lady and held each and every family member close to her heart. May she now rest in peace.

God Bless you Gladys may you rest in peace .Josh so sorry for your loss
