We are so very sorry to hear about your mother, Gloria. We both have such fond memories of her (and Weyman). She was such a vital part of Tate Baptist Church and we will certainly miss her sweet smile.
She sat behind us in church and never failed to shake our hand and speak to us during the welcome time. She will be missed by all of us.
May God give you peace during this very difficult time.

Gloria was a very good friend of mine. We have gone to Tate Church together for a long time. We were in the Faith Sunday School class. Our class was very close we went many times to eat on birthdays of class members. I will miss her very much. May God bless Kevin and family.
