This week’s Up Close & Personal feature is on Gladys Walters. Gladys is the Manager of Cloverdale Plaza in Bossier City, LA.

1. Name 3 people, dead or alive, that you would like to have dinner with & why?

  • My mother, Rosie – She has dementia and I just want her to recognize me as her daughter.
  • My cousin, Marlon – He passed away at Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans as we stood around his hospital bed. I just want to see his beautiful smile again as we talk about our love for family and which Food Network show ideas we will prepare for the next family dinner.
  • The Obama Family – I would love to hear some great stories (the good, the bad, and the ugly) about their years in the White House.

2. What’s the best vacation you’ve ever been on?

  • I took my kids to Biloxi, MS and it became a community service project instead of
    vacation. At the time, I worked in non-profit so they wanted to be like mama. We
    bought school supplies and volunteered at a back to school event.

3. What are your favorite TV shows, Netflix series, etc.?

  • Matlock
  • The Princess and the Frog
  • Judge Mathis

4. What are 3 things we don’t know about you?

  • Food Network Junkie
  • Court TV Junkie
  • I’m a cancer survivor.
  • Studied law in college but graduated in social work.
  • I’m the mother of teenagers – ages 19, 17, 16.

With gratitude & coffee,
