Gloria, Bob, Holly, Daun, Chris, and family, In recent years, I reacquainted with Gloria, my Franklin Elementary classmate and friend through our writing interests. I enjoyed hearing how your mom/grandmother role-modeled how to make the most of our days and live life to the fullest. Though we always want more time with our loved ones, you were so fortunate to make good memories with your mom/grandmother for many years. I hope they comfort you during those moments when you miss her most. You are all in my best thoughts and prayers.

I was especially blessed to know Gloria. She approached life with joy in her heart and a twinkle in her eye. She took every one of my dear friend Holly's pals under her wing and loved us as extended family. My condolences to the entire family. May God bless Holly & Daun with an extra measure of His favor for their unselfish care for this special lady. Rest In Peace Gloria. You were quite a dame!
