    Gloria was such a joy to be around. Always upbeat and ready for a new adventure. I got to know Gloria when she started shopping at my store many years ago. She was always on her way to some exotic place. I loved to hear about it when she got home.
    Gloria gave so much of herself to so many causes, ACA, Ocean Manor, etc. She was a great supporter of Flagler Ave.and it made me so happy when she won the drawing for our quilt made of all our Seaside Fiesta tees. I knew she was a collector, so I could not have been more thrilled.
    I am so sorry for your loss and the loss to all who knew Gloria.

    If I sat here and wrote everything I wanted to say I would be here for sometime so I will just write a short message and say: I will miss my wonderful friend and cohart. Gloria was a dedicated person who I know gave her all in everything she did. I will always personally cherish and the challenges and the fun times we shared.
    MY friend, you put up a good fight, now go rest in peace.
    I love you!
