Dear Donna and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I know you will miss her a lot and have much comfort knowing that she is at peace now. She and Mom had a lot of good times together. She was a lot of fun to work with those many years ago at Middleburg. God Bless you and your family. Love Carol Ann

I was sad to read about the passing of Gladys, my condolences to the family. It was my pleasure taking care of Gladys while she was a Resident of the Brethren Home. She loved her snacks! She also loved the cold water I would bring her every night I worked. I called her my "thirsty girl" and she would always reply "that's right"!! I will miss her, but comforted knowing she is at peace now. Tracy Perry, RN night shift
