Sending sympathy to the family of Gladys Stein. I met her when we went to school in Vandenburg, even spent a night at her home. I remember playing jacks with her on the sidewalk in front of their house. In later years, I learned that we were related. Her grandmother (Maria Brucks) was a sister to my grandfather ( John Henry Scfhulte). May you find comfort in remembering all the good times you had with her. Mavis, I miss seeing you.

Gladys, what pleasant memories I have of our visits & lunches out together. I treasure the green crocheted shawl you made to keep my shoulders warm while reading. You will remain in my heart forever. Chips mom, Judy
