Each of you is a part of her and therefor she will always be with you forever.Please let us know if you need anything at all…we are here for you.

I lost my Dad, and now you have lost your Mom. We are the “babies”, the youngest children that are left behind.We were close to our Parents.
It hurts and it hurts bad. I will tell you that you will have good days and not so good days ahead.Everything changes.People will tell you it gets easier.It does’nt, life is never the same again.There is always something there to remind you or you will see something as you’re driving that will trigger a memory (a good memory).You had many Sunday breakfasts together. Maybe continue that “tradition” even if it is alone. Strangely enough it will help.There is a flying field here in Harrisburg in Susquehanna Twp. (radio controlled airplanes like Dad built).They fly on Saturdays and if I am on patrol in the area I stop by. I sit and I watch and talk to the guys and we talk about their airplanes etc. It helps. I still feel a little connected in some small way.No it’s not the same and I know it will never be.
Know that I am here for you too. I understand- been there am still doing it..adjusting, coping, missing my Dad,remembering all the good times, the fun, the talks, the advice given (not always taken but he meant well).The memories you have are the gift that we are left with.You are in my thoughts so much Chris. Please let me know if you need a shoulder, an ear, or just someone to listen.Aunt Dot is a pretty good cook. We’d love to have you over for dinner. I’m not as good of a cook so I’m more apt to make a reservation for dinner-lol.Hope that made you chuckle a little.

Gloria was a super nice lady. I do maintenance at the complex where she lived and always enjoyed working in her apt and chatting with her. Rest in peace Gloria and my deepest condolences to her family.

My sympathies are with you on the loss of Gloria. We have been neighbors for quite some time, and I enjoyed chatting with her. One time I fell on the ice on the front sidewalk and while I was slowly getting up, she opened her window to ask if I was ok. It was a kind thing to do. She called to thank me the couple times I was off work due to the snow, and I removed the snow from my car, and did her car as well. She was a good neighbor, and it won’t be the same here without her. She will be missed.

Dear Family of Gloria,
I am so sad to learn the news about Gloria. Gloria was one of my very favorite customers through the years and a dear friend as well. I always enjoyed talking and working with her. I miss her and God bless all of you.
