When becoming a member of the Colorado Classic Thunder Bird Club almost 40 years ago, I met Gloria and Tito. There are many fond memories from car and club outings that I can recall. Gloria was a person who had many great values. Who loved her family, and life in general. You will be miss Gloria!
Peace and Comfort to Tito and family.

I don't think anyone ever taught me more about what family really means. From the first time I met her while still dating my wife, I was kin. I loved learning about the family's history and watching Family Feud highlights with her. I'll miss being in the backseat listening to her tell Tito how to drive. Their's was a love story for the ages. I can only hope to one day that others will speak and think of me the way I do of her. I love you and miss you Gloria.

The amount of love and support shown throughout the last 13 weeks has truly been amazing and helped so much during this difficult time. Thank you all for everything. Grandma, I love you and I miss you. Love, Bree
