Mariah Fenton Gladis
February 2, 1948 – July 7, 2018

Dear Friends,
It is very difficult for me to say this.Saturday morning Mariah passed away suddenly. She was due to come home from the hospital that afternoon. 
I’m having a very difficult time. And also recognizing that she had been a major part of your life. I’m not sure where she is but I know she is in my heart and I know she is in yours. So please carry her with you wherever you go.
At the moment, life is a little bit too raw for me. This past weekend a small circle of family and close friends came together to say good-by. I do plan to celebrate Mariah’s life soon in a more inclusive way. I will certainly let you know when I know when that will be.
Thank you so much for all your love, care, and support you have shown Mariah. I know she took a piece of your heart with her, and left you with a piece of hers. 
I have no more words.
