Some of my most precious memories are of spending time in the summers with my cousins, Gloria, Sylvia ,Johnny , and Ricky . I am so very sorry Gloria passed so early in life ,but my faith tells me she is more alive now than ever ,reunited with her mom and dad and Dagger and waiting for the day when she will be together with you again . My prayer is you will have the Peace and Comfort only Jesus can give , and your sorrow will be lessened by all the memories and love that fill your hearts whenever you think of her. Love your cousin, Donna

Gloria was like a second mom to me, when I lived in Mechanicsville, Md. she was also a second mom to my ex- fiancé at the time when she worked at her restaurant, Kathy cried when I told her of Gloria’s passing when I called her. We have not talked in 2 years. We are estranged. She wants to go but cannot. She is saddened, as well as I am.
