My condolences and prayers to Gloria's family and friends at her passing. I enjoyed her presence at St. Stephen when I was pastor there from 2001-2010. May God's comfort and promise be with you at this time.

My Condolences to Lauren and family. Gloria was my second mother. Living only 2 doors away on Division St., Lauren and I grew up together before going our separate ways when we got older. Gloria treated me like I was her son always teaching me the rights and wrongs as I grew up. I think I spent more time a Gloria and Lauren's home than I did my own. We did meet up later on, seeing her and Lauren at a show at the Mulroy Center. Well RIP my friend you are now in heaven with the love of you life Larry. Lauren I sure would like to hear from you. God Bless.

I will always remember all the good times I had over Aunt Gloria, Uncle Larry and Lauren's house. I don't think there was a week that went by that I didn't see them when I was young. She will be missed. She is in good hands now.

Gram - thank you for always having my back, being my biggest supporter and believing I could do no wrong even when there were times when I'm sure I had :-) I love you.
