To Bob, Beth & TJ - My heart is breaking. Gloria & I grew up together as cousins but she was the sister I never had. I am sad that I can not attend her funeral. Time & distance make it impossible for me to be there. I will always remember her as the loving, giving, thoughtful, caring woman she was. Even though the years have put hundreds of miles between us the memories will always be cherished ones. Marty & I are praying for God to give you peace & comfort right now through this tough time.
