That beautiful smile. Gloria teaching me how to make Strawberry Jam. The obvious love she held for her family. The trips to Smuckers fruit farm, in the old silver car she drove. Her heart. She gave me a love for Moss Rose's, and Day Lilies. Heaven is a much richer place now, and her family has such a blessing wIting for them.
