    Gloria had the most positive uplifting spirit of anyone I know. She was a cousin by marriage and a friend by choice. I will miss her!

    Gloria was one of those people that no one who met her didn’t like her instantly. She was one of the kindest, most caring persons i have ever known. She was always there as a friend. I hope we all appreciated her while she was here–i will miss her.
