  5. I met Gloria and John when they joined St. Alphonsus “Rock” church in the early nineties. They were active members from day one and remained there for years. They gave of themselves in everything they did . Gloria always had a kind word and sound advice and a “did you think about this aspect” to her advice,. She always spoke kindly, gave you time showing that she really cared. I will always remember both she and John and It comforts me to know John was probably standing there with the Lord as they welcomed her home….together again. Rest in Peace sweet Princess.

My sincere condolences to her family and all who loved her.
