The first thing about Gloria that comes to mind is her love for her family, her Heavenly Father Jehovah & that wonderful laugh! She was a very kind person with a heart ❤️ of gold! Although I moved many years ago I would still call on occasion & it was like we just talked the day before! She was a huge help to me Spiritually, emotionally & physically when I lived there with 3 young children with no family close by. She was & is truly “ my sister” ❤️
