I am so terribly saddened to hear this news. It was my pleasure to have worked with Gloria for 17 years. She was always a warm, caring, and supportive friend, with a delightful sense of humor; and so very proud of her family, to whom she was fiercely loyal and loving. Through the years, we shared much laughter and also ... some tears. I will miss our talks, my dear Gloria. My deepest condolences to Joanne, Joey, Terence and family. Deedee
