Late night food runs , parties, birthday celebrations , you name it we did it. Gloria and I were best buds since 4th grade. Glo was my oldest and dearest friend. I miss that girl so much. We share our innermost secrets . We fussed and complained about one another. We were more like sisters. My friends became her friends easily because she was such a warm friendly person. Glo was so giving. She did not birth any children , but she had so many. She would shower them with love, but she would always instill in each child a sense of worth. She stressed to them the importance of education. Gloria was a funny girl with a weird sense of humor. You had to know her to understand her sense of humor. I knew her and I understood. Value your friendships.
