So very sorry for your loss. I have such good memories of Gloria when I would sit with her and the games of TRIOMINOES that we would play! She never tired of playing . Pot pies and salad were her favorite ! I know she will be missed by many as well as myself. God bless you all and take comfort in the fact that Gloria is now resting in the arms of God.
