What a beautiful legacy Gloria created! I’ll always hold dear the memory of the joy in her face when I last saw her with the family. She held my hand tightly and was so bright and strong. I loved her so much. I keep all of you in my prayers as you honor her life, and look forward to the time we can all gather again in remembrance of the siblings who have left us but are all together again! Hallelujah!
