Gloria was a kind and loving person who will be terribly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her. My children were blessed to have the best grandmother, who was always there for them no matter what. I was blessed to have her as my mother in law who remained in my life right up until her death. I know she is in a better place now and up in heaven with C. Roy. My condolences to the entire Sabean family. May you all find comfort in your memories of Gloria. Love Michele Folsom
