Hello Hartsel family members, especially Portia ... i am so sorry to hear this news about Gloria. i very much enjoyed knowing her. We had many phone conversations and we shared lots of "news", lots of stories and lots of laughs. i will miss her. Portia, i'm so sorry for this loss. i know you cared very much about her, and took such good care of her, too. She told me, many times, how much she loved you for being so good to her. i had actually called her house not too long ago but no answer. i only just heard this because Diana E. msg.'d me to let me know. Maybe you can call me soon? Please do ... i won't be able to get over there but please know i'm thinking about you.

Dear family and friends, our thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this sad time.
Even though we're sad here on Earth we can rejoice and be happy that she's in heaven with our Lord and savior and our other family members this year. It was great seeing her a few weeks ago and having a lot of good laughs, I know Heaven is full of our Angels this year.
We can take comfort in there that she is no longer suffering. I love each of you.
