So sorry to learn of Gloria’s death; she was very special and will live long in our memory. I feel very thankful to have had a lovely visit with her at her home shortly before her recent hospitalizations. I feel saddened to know that she was unable to complete the special quilt she was so proudly crafting for her granddaughter, Enya. May she rest in peace, now that her struggle is over.
