Dear Sarah, Family and Friends, and Dear Dear Gloria,
I can still see us as little girls in K thru 8th…. made fun of one of our sub. teachers a few times and were scolded for it… (naughty girls)… How I wish I could have said good by to you and let you know how much you meant in my life. I think we all knew how much we meant to one another… didn’t we Barb??? Those were the days on Gibson Rd, 7th Street and Bancroft School… You will be missed, my dear friend. Your long time friend, Helen…………………….. and Jon too.
Sara and all family. So sorry to hear about Gloria’s passing. Lots of great memories to have and hold onto. Please know she and her family will be kept in our thoughts and prayers.
I have many years of laughter,and during the sad times I will think of the all the memories we shared.
