To the family of Gladys Rosa, I send our condolences. Miss Rosa, was much more then a neighbor, more then a friend, she was family, and I (we) feel the same pain as you. Gladys Rosa has always had a special place in my heart and always will. May God always be with each and everyone one of you, today and always. Linda Corbin and Family.

It is our wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to all of Gladys family. Gladys was a wonderful supporter of kids in South Lorain always eager to lend a helping hand. She supported the many activities at Lincoln School and grew to be a wonderful friend. Thank you Gladys for all you did for the KIDS. You were a true gift from God. Harry Guerrieri
