Our hearts are broken. There are really no words to describe our sorrow. Gloria was a sweet soul who will be deeply missed. There was no time to say goodbye, no time to let you know how much we loved you Gloria. I know you will rejoice in God's kingdom for eternity. You were an exemplary wife to Memin, and model mother to Cindy, Leroy and Adrian. My prayers are with them for comfort and acceptance. Rest in peace my beloved sister/friend. Thank you for your generosity and love for us. Fly High!! Elma Gutierrez
