I’m so sorry for the loss of your mom and grandmother. Glo was our biggest fan and never missed one of our softball games. She also wasn’t afraid to get on the umpire, when he made a bad call. She was a great lady, who will be missed by everyone.

Aunt Gloria was a little lady with a big personality! The best cook and deal shopper around! I have very fond memories of many Thanksgiving feasts prepared by her loving hands! I know she is having a joyous reunion in Heaven.
