Sending our most heartfelt sympathy to you and the family. Gloria and I started out at Sunday school together during our grade school days and continued to graduation in 1968. She was a wonderful person and I am grateful for the fact that I knew her for such a long time. I am sure she will be missed by all who knew her. Tim and I will keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Robin, I was so astonished to hear of Gloria's passing. We were out to dinner with friends last night when someone asked me about Gloria. We don't get the newspaper anymore but i try to stay up on local news, obviously not doing a very good job of it either. I have so many wonderful memories of Gloria and Gene and Robin when you were a little boy you were my first nephew. It's strange how life changes over the years but I have never forgotten my love and admiration for you both. Please accept my sincerest sorrow for your loss and let the memories be a constant reminder of her love for you! xoxo
