Perhaps you sent a lovely card, or sat quietly in a chair. Perhaps you sent a funeral spray, if so we saw it there. Perhaps you spoke the kindest words, as any friend could say. Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day. Whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you so much whatever the part.

Gloria was an amazing woman. She made friends where ever she went. I met Gloria at the ballpark in Coconut Creek FL. Her grandson was playing baseball on the same team as my daughter. We became instant friends. We kept in touch through the years. Gloria will be dearly missed. I will miss her cards and phone calls. Rest in peace sweet, sweet friend. xo

Only a few ppl in my circle know what Gloria meant to me. She was like a 2nd Mother. I always knew of her from my mom, and neighbor, Veronica’s, meetups, from years past and Bargain Bonanza in Deer Park.

But since my Mom was diagnosed with Cancer in 2013 we connected on another level. When my Mom passed she undertook the tremendous responsibility of adopting the duty of Mom from the Bench.

We spoke almost daily for more than 6 years, comforted and prayed for one another and encouraged each other through some tough times.

She helped me through with a voice of reason and a heart of gold. Something I know my Mom knew I needed and would greatly appreciate.

Life never seems to give us enough! She should have had more time on Earth with us but she was called home to continue her service to the Lord.

Glo you will forever have a piece of my heart and I will carry that into the future that is shaped for me and my loved ones.

Thank you for being the Amazing Person you were to Me! Xoxo. Rest In Eternal Peace and Stop Worrying So Much! 😊

To Gloria’s Family,

I owe you a tremendous debt of gratitude for sharing ur Sister/Mother/Aunt/Grandma/Great Grandma/Friend with me.

To Deb and Jo, I can tell you I am extremely proud to have gotten to know each of you since befriending your Mom. Lol.

Sounds funny a 44 year old man saying that about an 86 yr old woman but she truly was so much more than just a Role Model.

She was so grateful and spoke so highly of you both. Your daily sacrifice did not go unnoticed.

To All of You, Her Sisters, Sons(In Law), Daughters(In Law), Nieces, Nephews, Grandchilren and Great Grandchildren no matter which one of you we spoke about, she always expressed a tremendous amount of Pride and Joy being part of your lives.

To Her Granchildren, She bragged about you all Daily! If not to me, to someone else.

If I could share 1 piece of advice, make the call! Call someone you love n honor your Gloria.

To you, mom
My best friend, my pain in the butt at times but my entire world.
There are no words to say about why and how come this happened to you but iI know for me my heart is broken and with your help it will repair.

The love that has poured in for you just reassures me of that. You were loved by so many and I hope your feeling all that love because I am. Love you with all my heart mom and i'm going to miss you even more.
Your daughter, Debra

I spent almost my entire youth at my Aunt Gloria's house. I was fortunate to be at an age that I could share my childhood with almost the entire Edwards family.. I spent almost every day in her house. I played there every day, I would swim in her pool every summer. Our families would go camping together during the summer.. But as I got older I found that the greatest gift my Aunt Gloria gave me was her love for my children, as if they spent all their youth at her house too.. I watched a woman who spent every day in pain pray for everyone else.. I know my family was always in her prayers and thoughts.. I know God loves her, but I will still miss her.
