I worked with Gloria at St. Paul's School in the 1980s. She was a good friend to all of us who worked there.

I met Gloria at Eucharistic Adoration, discovered out shared love for the Rosary. We became friends and would pray for each others family and friends.
She will be missed, but she is in a better place.
