  1. I am so very sorry for your loss. I loved Gladys and Tooney. They were an important part of my childhood and they always had a special place in my heart.

  2. Mrs. Council was such a lovely lady. My daughters, Eden, Elise, and I were fortunate to live next door to her in the rental house in the early 90’s. We would visit across the fence and I would admire her colorful Johnnie Jump Ups. Fortunately, we were able to chat with her during the 100th birthday celebration a few months ago. She will be missed.
