My first memories of Gloria I would like to share. In the 1960’s , most probably after Gloria first opened her office I walked in. She was sitting behind a desk . She was wearing a very bright, large rimmed hat and she was also wearing a beautiful smile. The analogy to her description is this. Gloria was always wearing a beautiful smile. The large rimmed hat was how Gloria presented herself, larger than life and brighter than a shinning star. She impressed me as someone who was not afraid to join the world. She became a friend immediately. We stayed in touch over all of those years and she always expressed the love of her family. Then she would turn the conversation to me and my family. Gloria was a genuinely concerned about about what was going on in my life. I will miss her smiling face and questions that I will not be able to give her any longer? I pray that she has found heaven and those that have gone before her. I will miss my friend Gloria. I love you Gloria, and thank you for always being there for me.
