I would like to send my sincere Condolence to all of Gloria’s family.
Unfortunately I was out of country on the day of her memorial, but I understand there was a large number of people that attended to say their farewell to a very strong and special lady.
I met Barry and Gloria about 45 years ago. I always enjoyed their company there was always an open door and had many good times with them.
Although I had not seen a lot of Gloria since Barry passed away, l was happy l got to spend some time with her a week before she passed.
I am sure Barry and Gloria are together again!
The memories I have of them will always be with me.

I wish to express my sincere condolences to Gloria’s family and ad these few words.
The passing of a friend, especially one who you have known for over half a century is a sad occasion for me. It’s hard to fathom that 55 years have gone by since I first met Gloria who I believe was a mere 12 years of age at that time. As time flew by and she eventually married my very good friend Barry King, we also became good friends.
I was fortunate to have been part of the many good times during Gloria’s life, but I also witnessed a few of the very difficult moments she experienced. Those situations took an enormous toll on her as a mother, wife and grandmother, but while not forgotten, Gloria’s inner strength helped her get through those unforeseen and very difficult times..
Gloria had a spunky, rough and tumble side to her and didn’t take much crap from anyone which I admired, probably because we were similar in that regard. Gloria did have a mind of her own, and she wasn’t afraid to let you know what she thought. She also had a soft and generous side that I saw on many occasions over the years and I knew she wasn’t quite as tough as she wanted people to think she was. I can honestly say that in all the time we knew each other, we never, ever had any issues that interfered with our friendship. That was probably due, to us both knowing that the other had certain buttons that probably shouldn’t be pushed. With that said, the Gloria I knew never lost her spunky attitude.
Unfortunately for the last 8 years we had not kept in touch like we probably should have. However, my last visit with her and her husband Felix a couple of months ago ended with us giving each other a big hug, and I knew we were still good friends after all these years.
After all you have been through, I hope you can now rest in peace my old and dear friend!.
