    We will greatly miss you and your gentle presence Gloria. You were always kind and generous to everyone, and a better friend would be hard to find. Your nature was always so generous and giving; and you were always there to help a friend in any way.
    You were the best mother ever to your beautiful children, and your devotion and love for them will never be forgotten. You worked very hard to ensure that their needs and desires were never ignored, and guided them lovingly with patience and unparalleled sensibility; always setting the best example for them to learn by and follow. God bless you always Gloria, you will surely be missed by your beautiful family and those of us who were fortunate to have you as a friend. You made this world a better place for all who knew you. Lovingly, Pat Proudfoot
