To the family of this awesome mother, sister, aunt, friend, crafter and neighbour, the late Gladys Straker. May you find peace in knowing that Gladys lived her best life and encouraged others to do the same. We exchanged morning inspiration tags every day. Let me share one of the last tags I received from her:

Cherish every person in your life
Life is fragile
You never know when will be the last time you see someone
Take nothing and no one for granted

That was Gladys. Always encouraging. Always sharing. Alwayus creating memories. Know that she will continue to live in you and through you. Hold onto those memories. Let them be your guiding light.

Sleep in peace, my friend and rise in glory.
