I remember being made to feel like I was one of the family whenever I stayed at the Rugan house. Gloria was a wonderful, kind, loving and caring woman. Simply put, she was one of the best and I loved her. To the Rugan family: I am so sorry for your loss. She was a remarkable woman and she will be greatly missed. Sending thoughts and prayers to you all.
