    I love you so much. I’m gonna miss you terribly. I appreciate everything you have done for me especially raising me. You were so wise. You were always there no matter what even when I screwed up. I have no clue what I am going to do without you. I take comfort knowing you lived a long, beautiful life. I’m am so glad that my children had the opportunity to spend so much quality time with you, not too many get time with their great-great grandmother. I love you and a piece of my heart will always be missing. I know you were greeted by many members of the family but most importantly by God. ❤❤❤

    Gloria, I am so sorry for your loss.As I looked at all the pictures on here, it was quite obvious that your mom had such a caring family. A lot of happiness showed in those pictures” I know that she had some heartache of her own in the loss of a husband, son and Sherry. Now, she has been reunited with them forever and the rest of you have so many wonderful memories. Take Care
