My grandma was one of a kind. My best memories are of spending the weekends with her as a young child. She must’ve always loved teaching children because it was she who taught me to read and write. She would take me to work with her sometimes back when Childtime was still called Gerber. She loved her family and was blessed to see her grandchildren and great grandchildren grow up. She was even able to meet her two great great grandchildren as well. How amazing is that? My grandma’s unconditional love I will hold in my heart forever and always . I miss you Grams 💜

I had the pleasure of working with Gloria for many years at Childtime in Alhambra. She would call me her boss but I think we all know who was really in charge :) Gloria was an important part of our staff for many years and started with the company 1/13/1983. For over 25 years until late 2008 Gloria worked at our preschool as a teacher. The building bears a dedication plaque for 20+ years of great service! I remember Gloria as a dedicated and dependable employee but mostly a wonderful friend! She kept in touch with us over the years and I was honored to be invited to her big (80th?) birthday party. A party we still talk about, it was so much fun that day. I think she just "retired" from Childtime a year or so earlier or she might have still been on our sub list! She made me the best salsa (chile) and no one can replicate that. She showed me once a picture of her and her husband standing next to their car and I admired it so much she gave me a copy. I have that photo to this day over my desk. When I visited her at her house she had The Hat sandwiches and of course insisted I make a plate. And every year I got a Christmas card. I'm going to miss hearing her voice every so often calling Childtime and asking about Molly, Stella and Sally. I thought for sure she would be here 100 years or more, but she will be in my heart. And we think of her every day we walk into work because her name is right on the front! I didn't have time to find all the photos but thank you Gloria, for all of the children you taught and what we all learned from you! I'm going to miss you, my co-worker, our friend!

On one of our visitors to see grandma, Mona & I brought our dog, Jessi. (She's a labrador retriever) A lot of the family was there as well with their smaller dogs, everyone was running around & having fun. I was sitting off to the side with grandma & Jessi, holding on to Jessi by her leash. Grandma says to me, "Why don't you just let Jessi loose?"
I said, "Well, all the little dogs & kids are running around & I don't want to cause any chaos."
Grandma turned around & looked at me & said, "Let her go!"
I said, "Yes ma'am," & promptly did so. Jessi just layed down right where she was.
Grandma, seeing that, looked back up at me & said, "See, she just wanted to lay down, geez!"
To which I couldn't disagree & had to chuckle.

One day about 24 yrs ago my mom told me we were going to a family reunion on her dads side of the family and I was so excited because I never knew them. When we got to the park my mom introduced me to her aunt Gloria and aunt Gloria introduced us to her granddaughter Monalisa. Turns out Lisa and I had met and hung out and played pool a few times at a gay bar. It’s a small world when you think of it and I had asked her if in fact she was the person that I met and sure enough she was. Luckily for us we weren’t attracted to one another at the time we met because we would have had to wash our mouths out with soap!!! We had hung out with aunt Gloria a second time and the two times we did were very memorable. Lisa and I had continued our new found family relationship till she went into the navy. Then lost contact for a good 15 yrs but thanks to Facebook we found one another again but have yet to hang out and play pool. I love you cousin and I’m here for you during this tough time in your life! I’m happy God crossed our paths and we reconnected! I only wished we grew up together from babies to know our family in the same way you do.
Sincerely,
Corrine Fuentes granddaughter of Albert Fuentes aka (majat) chief Indian
daughter of Alberta Fuentes aka (majatika) daughter of the chief
