honestly there are so many nice things I can say. She took me in as part of the family when I was there to help her. We laughed and watched the Andy Griffith show and little house on the prairie. We did small activities and I played oblong with everything. It made her comfortable and happy. I am glad she had Donna and Lydia and noella in the end because she felt safe with them. She would not have wanted to go any other way. May she Rest In Peace forever. Hope she is laughing at us from heaven. I am sure she is the life of the party. She actually called me her angel. Now she is mine. Love you all. Im here for you

Aunt Priscilla and family,

I'm so sorry to hear of Gloria's passing. I really enjoyed working with her at Easterseals many years ago. She was always so kind and sweet and loved her family deeply. I admired her love and dedication to Jeffrey and always made sure he had the best care possible. Praying for you and her family!
