I had the pleasure of knowing Gloria for four and a half years. I enjoyed her wonderful, warm personality and great intellect and interest in the world around her as well as her deeply Christian faith. I was away on a trip when she passed; in fact had left for the airport on 20th October. I am very sorry that she has passed and miss her so much. I keep looking for her light to go on. So sad.
