    Gloria had a beautiful soul and was such a kind and warm person. Through all the years of bringing her children to the dental clinic, we got to know her quite well. She kept us well stocked in Avon too. I will always cherish our talks and she will always be in my heart. She’s free of age and pain now and back with her love and precious Mary, as well as her family and friends.

    My thoughts and prayers are with your family and may all her memories comfort your hearts until the great reunion. Hang in there Sam!
