Hi Sue:
I just heard about you mom’s passing. So sorry to hear and wish I was there for support. She had a good long life and has been close to you for so many years. I know it will be difficult but just remember that the distinction between past, present and future is just an illusion. Although it may seem like years to you, for her it will be less than a second and you’ll all be together again. As quickly as she turns around to look for you, you’ll be there!
I will be in St. John’s late next week and will stop by to say hello.

Love Barry and Christine

Charming, loving, non judgmental, fierce love for her family, humorous, witty and wise. This is how I remember Aunt ️Glad. Even though I have not been in close contact of late your memory is forever etched in my heart. Deepest sympathy to my cousins.❤️🙏❤️

Sue, Ron and all of your family sending heartfelt condolences to you all.

Leanne, Sue, Doug and Tim, so sorry for your loss. Your Mother was a beautiful woman inside and out. Every time we saw her she would always have a beautiful smile on her face. She knew how to make everyone in the room have a chuckle. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all in this difficult time . Love Always Gus and Wendy, Kristen and Michael Richards.

My heart is breaking along with my cousins Doug, Tim, Leanne and Sue, as we try to imagine a world without her. Aunt Glad was a huge part of the “village” of people who raised me. She was always there to cheer me up, encourage and most importantly, she taught me to love fiercely. I loved her sense of humour most of all. Aunt Glad, I am relieved you are suffering no more and like to think of you and Mom enjoying a lobster (or two) together in heaven. My memories are many and I know they will always bring a smile to my heart when I am missing you with tremendous love!
