Dear Arthur, my love, prayers and condolences are with you and my heart aches for your loss. Gloria loved you very much. Kathy, Margie, Sandy, Roselle, Larry and Kenny- I'm sorry for your loss and my heart aches for you all knowing the pain we go through when we lose a parent. Your Mother, Gloria was a gem and a great role model to many of us in the neighborhood. She was a great neighbor and we will never forget her. Your Mother was always there when I needed a little guidance, advice and support. Your Mom was always giving and kind. Your Mother was always there to lend a helping hand. Your Mother wiped my tears, she put band-aids on my scraped knees and elbows when I fell off my bike or when I fell jumping over the fence between our homes, she put ice packs on our heads when someone aimed for the piñata but hit our heads instead, she fed us and shared her food, she opened her pantry to us when Arthur and her would come home from big shopping sprees at Tudouze Market, Fed-Mart or Handi-Andy, she made the best popcorn for the movie of the week on Friday Nights, she hosted the best sleep-overs, she made awesome, buttery tortillas, she made the best Texas, sweet, Iced Tea, she bought the coolest gifts and she taught Roselle and I how to make cakes in the E-Z Bake Oven, she made us lots of fresh cookies, she taught Roselle and I how to make spaghetti out of the spaghetti in a box and also taught us how to make hamburger helper, she taught us how to play and how to forgive one another when we got mad at each other, she loaned us sugar, milk, eggs, bread, etc... and she always insisted that there was no need to pay her back, she taught me the importance of voting and our civic duties, she taught me that reading was the way to a great future and she often drove us to the local and neighborhood libraries, she drove us to and from school on rainy days and during cold, winter days, she drove us to Concepcion Park Swimming Pool and to Roosevelt Swimming Pool, she took us to the skating rink, she drove us to Don Bosco for our St. James softball games, she made me go to church even when I didn't want to go, she was there with my Mom to cheer us on, she was a best friend to My Mom, she was a confidant to my Mom as my Mom was to her and when my Mom passed on, she was there to hold me up in the sad times, she even came to sit with me while I was in Labor with Kay Cee because I needed to fill the void of needing my Mom while I was giving birth, she was always there when I needed a little love. Your Mom taught me important life lessons and most importantly, she taught me how to be a kind, loving neighbor by sharing, caring and giving. Your Mom was the cool Mom in the neighborhood. She taught me how to be a good neighbor as an adult and I'd like to thank you all for sharing your beautiful Mom with us. Even though she didn't say the words "I love you" to us, we just knew she loved us by the kind acts of love, sharing and caring that she blessed us with. We will all miss your Mom and the neighborhood won't be the same without her. Your Mom will always have a special place in my heart. Thank you Gloria, we love you and will miss you greatly. Respectfully, with love and gratitude, Rachel Barrios-Van Os. Oh and P.S. I almost forgot to mention that your Mom made the best* tamales at Christmas time.

My condolence goes out to the Guerrero family. I have wonderful memories of Ms. G, and she was truly a gem at Burbank High School. She was there for all of Burbank's children, and also opened her home to us too. I want to thank the Guerrero family for sharing your mother with us. God Bless
