Dear Michael, David and Ronnie, and all you families -- Amy and I send our deepest condolences on the loss of your mom. Gloria was such an exceptional woman and personality, and so many people loved and cared about her. She always lit up a room, and I was always delighted to have a chance to connect with her, though it was rare in recent years. We had so much fun seeing her in Pittsburgh when we were there a little before the pandemic. May her memory be a blessing for your, all your family, and everyone that knew and loved her. Love to all, Jonathan

Dear Dave, Ron, Michael and families, What a tremendous loss! My heart goes out to you all. I've known your mother maybe longer than I've known anyone other than my sisters. I have deep memories of her outgoing spirit, deep-stash cookie jar, and watchful eye over the corner of Sharon Drive and Pacific Ave. She was a force of nature and one of a kind. May you lean on each other in your grief, supported also by all of us who love you. Gloria had a good long run and made a positive impact in the world. May her memory be a blessing.
