Gloria and I went to nursing school together... that was in 1948. She has been a friend ever since even if we went our
separate ways over the years.. I met her cousin Don and for some reason Don and I ended up being married and were
together for 67 years.. Gloria was the Maid of Honor... She and I kept in touch but distance kept us from seeing each
other but one does not need to see someone to remember the fun times we had and memories that will touch us as
we see and hear things that bring them back.
Our Prayers are with her as she goes to her New Room... I am sure she will be loved by many people.
Prayers to the family from Janet and her family..
