  3. Gloria, was a long time friend from Grace Dodge high school. She was a loving soul who tried to help you when there was a problem while, being a special friend, that's just what she was a sister that I never had and was always their for me in my time of need. I had been trying to reach her for sometime because she always called to make sure I was alright and when I called to find out if my friend,sister was alright, she was "GONE." Gloria, I tried to reach you a number of times and I knew something was not right but you know that I miss you and love you and my days won't be the same because I'll be waiting for your call. I love you and I know your with God where you should be,god bless you and keep you. To the family my sympathy to you all but, she's in a better place no worrying or,problems. We miss you.
