Well, I'm still stunned over our loss.
Gloria and I became good friends as young teenagers. I remember doing stayovers and listening to records. Laughing and being silly. We drifted in different directions in High School then I moved to California. Gloria called me, out of the blue, about 7 or8 years later. She'd overheard a conversation in a store about me and got my number from another friends Mom. It was always as if no time had passed when we spoke or got together. I am so sad to have lost her. She was a special person and I miss her.
