I had the great good fortune to have known Gloria while residing next door to her for two years.We'd often chat as she would come and go in her car,stopping to greet Kenya Lindsay,my English Setter and myself;always a generous smile and a kind,soft spoken word or two from her.I'll forever be at loss without those extemporaneous exchanges and have missed her ever since her departure from Sugarmill.

Gloria included me as part of her family for over fifty years. There will always be an emptiness without our chats. Her family will always be my other family. She sounded so happy just last week. My heartfelt sympathy and love to all.

I send my deepest sympathy to the family, I was sad to hear of Gloria's passing. She was a friend and it was a pleasure to take care of her. I know she will be missed by many, especially her good friend Marie who shared many years of friendship with her. Also her bridge buddies that she enjoyed playing with and usually winning. RIP my friend, and God bless. Candy Muccioli
