    So very very sorry to hear about Gloria’s passing. Be comforted just knowing that she is now pain free in God’s arms.

    Remembering all of the happy times as well as her signature laugh will help at this difficult time.

    Gloria was a gift to all who knew her. We share lots of memories of a close friendship in our Parkside neighborhood.. Gloria’s laugh was infectious to all.
    With my deepest sympathy to Bill, Bryan and family,
