Condolences for Gladys Croom Branch

Patty Kinston posted on 9/7/21

I wanted to share my deep condolences with the family during this difficult time. I know it’s hard to accept that someone we all loved has passed away. I will truly miss my dear friend. She was a jewel and will always be in my heart along with your Dad. I will cherish all of the sweet memories we had..sitting on the porch talking, long conversations on the phone, visiting her in the hospital and our favorite…eating lunch at the Olive Garden which we thoroughly enjoyed. Rest In Peace my friend. I will close with this quote by Mitch Albom, “Life has to end. Love doesn’t.” Please let me know if there’s anything I can do. May God bless you and I’m sorry for your loss.

May you Rest In Peace dear Cousin, joyful in being reunited with all your loved ones. We shared many, many family memories, especially when we were young on our Grandmother Crooms farm, and at Aunt Beulahs, or when you all would come to New Jersey. Our fathers being brothers were always such a joy to watch as they so treasured time together. I’m grateful for the beautiful family memories, and for the sweet, loving cousin you were. Blessings and Peace!! Your cousin - Marie

When I first met your dad, and then your mother, I knew almost instantly that they were God's children. Captain Branch was my training officer at Winter Park Volunteer Fire Dept, and your mother always helped with our fund raising projects back in the 1970's and 80's. Both were giving, expecting nothing in return. They were the salt of the earth.

I will miss my dear and ever sweet cousin, Gladys, so much. We kept in touch on the phone being I live in Jersey. I always looked forward to seeing her even though it was very seldom in the past years. She brought me much joy. I treasure all the beautiful memories, especially our childhood.
