Dear Mike and family,
Sorry to read of your wife's passing. Wow, 55 years! She was a very active woman who contributed a lot to better the organizations she was involved in.
Whenever I learn of the shenanigans going on in the government, I remember the audits we went through at Aetna. Oh, for the good old days.

What sad news about your Wife, Mom, Grandma and GG,
I've known Gladys as a young Mom when Mike and Debbie were in Nathan Hale with my Pattie and Michael.
We reconnected years later playing Bunco. Gladys was always a sweet., gentle, caring person throughout her life.
Always willing to lend a hand. So very proud of you. her family.
She will be missed.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this very difficult time.
