I just wanted to say what a blessing it has always been to be great nephew to Rex and Gladys Pointer. I stayed with them a short time when I moved to Dallas not long after college. Aunt Gladys always had a smile even though she lived with terrible physical pain. She was always quick to good wit. I liked swimming with her. God bless her and I will see her again one day.
