Gloria was a truly positive light in the worlds of people she knew. She was a comforting and loving soul. I enjoyed getting to know Gloria and her family while working with her at Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center. We often talked about how she would spend her weekends doing arts and crafts with her grandchildren. Gloria was deeply loved by those around her and will be deeply missed. My deepest condolences to her family. Rest peacefully, Gloria.

Chris and family,

This is such heartbreaking news about such a gentle, kind and Godly lady! She was the best team member of our real estate company’s history. Funny to say today but she brought us into the computer age with her skills. She brought grace and dignity into our office with her dry wit. She was a favorite with our customers and we could always count on her. Her work ethics were perfect. We were sorry when she moved away to Georgia. On the lighter side Chip and Garret loved to call from school saying they were “sick” so Gloria would bring them to work. She noticed how quickly they got “well” playing the Nintendo game system.
We pray you will know the comfort, strength and peace of our Lord and Savior as only He can give at this very difficult time. Our love and prayers go out to you and the family.
Bill, Faye, Bill,Jr., Sandy, Houston, Jonathan and Katie

Chris,
As you know I met Gloria in the first grade. She was a very special little girl then. Even though we didn't get to see each other much through the years when we did she was still a special lady. When I ran into her at HG Gloria always had that sweet beautiful smile. She will always hold a special place in my heart.
She is now healed & with her Lord & Savior. We will see her again.
You & your family will be in my prayers. It will be 8 years next month since my David went to be with the Lord. May God give you peace & comfort. He is the only one who will walk every step with you. He is faithful.

Ms. Gloria, as she will always affectionately be known in my heart, had the most beautiful kind, loving spirit. Despite her own professional responsibilities, she always made time to check on me personally. I know many people at Carolina Asthma & Allergy Center can say the same thing. I will be forever grateful to have felt the constant, radiating love of Jesus Christ from Ms. Gloria. I will never forget her presence in my life and the gift she has been to us all. I send my deepest condolences to her family, friends, and loved ones.
