I have very fond memories of Gloria when she attended our church, Family Baptist Church in Bowerston. She always made sure to sit next to us and give me a hug the minute I came in the door. I gave her a ride several times home from her visits in Bowerston after she moved out of her apartment and in with her daughter. It makes me sad that I didn't keep in touch with her her these last few years because I truly loved her, she was a wonderful lady and a proud mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She will be truly missed. My deepest sympathy to the family.
