  Gail and Lynette and families, Denny and I were surprised to read about your Mother's passing. I always looked forward to visiting with her at Family functions. She was still sharp as a tack and I enjoyed the times we had to chat. May God's love and comfort pour over you as you mourn your loss and hold memories dear. Love, Denny and Carol.

Carol Lehman
We were so sorry to hear of your Mother's death. She was a lovely lady and I enjoyed many visits with her over the last few years. She never missed an opportunity to congratulate and encourage our 3 children in their growing-up years. She will be greatly missed.

Mary and Tracy Sanders
Much love and comfort to you, my cousins, in these years of the passing of our parents generation. Peace be with you.

JoAnne Lehman
Gladys and Wilmer were stalwart leaders in the Carlisle BIC church. They were both great people whom I knew growing up as a young lad and onward into adulthood. Both Wilmer and Gladys had those great smiles and warm hearts. I always respected and cherished both of them for their strong practice of the Christian faith and family values. They will leave behind a legacy of love and concern for others. May God be with all the greater Lehman family members during this time of loss and who can rest assured they are both with our almighty Heavenly Father.

So very saddened to hear of your Mother's death. I have nothing but wonderful memories of our families times together. From pulling taffy in your kitchen on College street to the many vacations we went on together. (especially fond of the Limigan damn). Your Mom will certainly be missed by all who knew her. She was a super Gal and she loved the Lord!!
Nancy Mercado
We are so sadden by the passing of our dear friend but we are also rejoicing in the fact that heaven received a soul that was born an angel.  To the family- Your mother, grandmother, sister was so proud of her whole family.   We will miss her yearly Christmas letter.  God Bless all of you. 
Jeff and Shawndel Staruh
I am so sorry to hear about her passing.  I was travelling on business and unable to attend the funeral.  Gladys and Wilmer were my landlords for three years when I was in law school and they treated me like family.  They were truly wonderful people.
