I have so many fond memories of Gloria. Back in the 70's and 80's she was like a 2nd mother to me. She taught me how to cook. We went fishing and hunting together with the family. We had so much fun going across the border in Del Rio. On Saturdays Edith, Gloria and I would always go to El Patio (her favorite restaurant) for lunch and then watch the La Dare Boys dance. We shared a lot of cold beers at various dive bars. She will be missed ! Rest in peace my dear friend. My condolences to the family !!! My most heartfelt prayers to you.
