Gloria was a dear cousin, she called me cuz, we loved laughing and sharing stories about our mothers,"the Fendley girls" , ours is a large family ,we are blessed, she is home with Jesus I have no doubt, and her husband "Bo" is a selfless God fearing caregiver who sets an example for us all, he has strong support in his family and I pray for comfort and courage for Bo now, I wish I had spent more time with her
