Gloria will always have a special place in my heart. I knew her for only a few months, but I am lucky that I could know her. I remember when I would sleep-over at Sophia's, she would work in the kitchen as I watched Dr. Who with Sophia, looking up occasionally and adding remarks on episodes that were funny, interesting, or one of her personal favorites. The last time I saw her, she made us girls fancy juice, and sent us upstairs to practice our songs for our performances the next day. She loved Sophia's music.
Unfortunately, I never got to see her again. But I will always remember her as an amazing role model and a wonderful woman.
My heart goes out to Tom, Christina, and Sophia as they navigate these difficult times.
Rest in peace Gloria
