Our sons played Plainfield football together. We were just reunited. Gloria will be missed. She loved her grandchildren and spoke of how they made her laugh.

Gloria and I first met at Norwich Hospital. I can still hear her voice and her laugh. Our sons were the same age and we always had stories to share. We reconnected through Facebook recently and I'm so glad we did. My deepest condolences to her family. RIP Gloria.
