Dear Millie and family. ❤️ So sorry to read that Gloria passed away. 😘 My thoughts and prayers are with you all. She was a beautiful lady and I always remember her with that smile. When Babe was in Melville and I came down and went to visit her Ronnie and I stopped in to visit Gloria and she knew the both of us. Glad I got to see her back then. RIP Gloria. 🙏🙏 You are now with all your loved ones. ❤️

Growing up I recall enjoying so many fun moments at your house, whether you lived across the street, on Osborne, or a 10 min drive away from us on the Terence Bay Rd. Whenever we weren’t at your house, you and Paul were at ours playing cards on Friday or Saturday night! Those were all good times, but let’s not forget about the trips back to camp and other vacations our families took together. Those memories will last forever. Love you sweet Aunt, RIP.

As Janet's cousins we were always thrilled to go visit our Uncle Paul, Aunt Gloria and Janet. Though we didn't see them often, they were always included in our trips down memory lane. Janet, I'm so sorry for the pain you and your family are going through right now.

I don't have a lot of memories of Aunt Gloria, Uncle Paul and Janet but the ones I do have take place in Seaforth when they would all come for a day visit. There was always smiles and laughter and spending time with Janet. Wish there would have been more times like that.
