My heart goes out to you all.
What a fantastic generous, happy, beautiful Lady Gloria was. She had the gift of gab so she and I always got along very well! She always had a big smile on her face, and would laugh when telling me something funny. She loved to take care of everyone. Especially the little ones.
I remember one year Mindy & Dave had a Halloween party, and several of us had our first baby. Gloria rushed over and was in heaven to be surrounded in babies to hold.
Gloria always loved my boys like they were her own Grandchildren. She gave both my boys their first haircuts, and stopped by often when they were young with gifts & treats.
I will miss her.
May the memories of her give you peace and strength during this difficult time.
Love and hugs to you all.
