Gloria shared only a short amount of time with me but her smile could light up a room. She was honest and genuine with her warmth and I feel blessed to have known her. Rest in God’s arms.

I'm so saddened by Aunt Gloria's passing. She really was a kind soul. She always had a smile on her face and was always genuinely happy to see you. She loved her family dearly and spoke of her children and grand children with such pride. She will be missed. Thinking of all the Gaetas and their extended family during this difficult time. Love, Cecilia

I didn't see her often, but she was always so sweet, kind & thoughful whenever I saw her. I especially enjoyed our visits when I went to visit grandma. We'd always get together when my mother came to visit from Nebraska. I am so saddened by by her loss. I will miss her & my deepest sympathies to her children, grandkids, Humberto & her sisters.

My deepest condolences to Humberto, my cousins Anthony, Diane, Machelle, Rick and their families as they grieve her loss.

My Aunt Gloria was a beautiful woman inside & out. I will always remember her kindness. She was always so welcoming with a ready smile on her face. One of the things I will miss most is seeing her with her sisters. They had such a beautiful bond.

Rest In Peace Aunt Gloria.
I love you!❤️
