Art & I are terribly sorry for the loss of Gloria. Our prayers of comfort to Kenny & all the family. We just learned of her passing & are sorry we couldn't be there to comfort you in person. There will for sure be an "empty spot" on the corner that we pass @Hillsboro Family camp. Always enjoyed talking with Gloria & Kenny on our way by that spot.

For Ken and the entire family sorry to hear of your loss. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. So many great memories of Ken and Gloria while growing up in Harlan. Always appreciated how Gloria would encourage others to be a positive influence and remind us to enjoy the many blessings the Lord provides us every day.

My heart goes out to the whole Peters family. You are all so dear to my heart. I spent a lot of time as a teen in the Peters house and ate many meals made by Gloria. I have fond memories of camping with them and just being at their home. Gloria was very hospitable and she will always hold a place in my heart. May God be with you all through this time.
