Gloria - I can't believe that it has been a year. It has gone so fast, yet every day I think of you and still miss your warm smile and great hugs but most of all I miss our wonderful friendship. God helped our paths cross and I'm sure she will cross us again and we'll have great stories to tell one another! I love you always.

Goodbye to our sweet Gloria! So many wonderful memories go through my mind of fun times in the desert, "on the road" in our busses and visits in Washington state! But most of all, the love I've seen between Gloria and Len is a love, that is truly a "love of a lifetime"! My heart goes out to you Len and your family, I know you all miss her dearly.

I met this wonderful woman at the NASCAR races with Marathon Coach, and immediately fell in love with her warm and funny personality. She would trade olive oil from her beloved St. Helena area, and I would trade wine from North Carolina. She will be truly missed. My deepest sympathy to her family.

Len - I hope you know you and Gloria hold a very special place in our hearts. We are so glad we met you when we did. I will always remember Gloria's joyful, radiant face as she wrapped her arms around you....What a gift that was for me to see! Thank you for living a life of love in front of us, and for showing us what it means to be a true friend. We love you!

Gloria was an adorable Grandma to my kids and they will really miss her. Len and Gloria established some lasting family traditions for Christmas and birthdays. They always called the kids on their birthday and sang the birthday song in unison. They had a special relationship and were always very kind to one another. She made the best roasted potatoes and delicious pasta sauce. God bless you Gloria.

Len and Family, Our thoughts are with you at this sad time. Although it has been a long time since we were together, we will treasure many fond memories of Gloria and our happy and fun family gatherings. Not the least of which were on the Delta and at the Barn. Our prayers are with you as you pass through this difficult time. We will always remember her lovely spirit.

Gloria, you gave the BEST hugs.....like you really meant them! We always looked
forward to the Spring and your return to St. Helena. We will forever see you on
the front deck barefoot, with a book and a smile. Your spirit will always be with
us. You and Len have been an inspiration.
We are sending so much love to you and your family as you make your journey,
Lisa, Chuck, and Clare-Elyse Vondra

Paul & I met Gloria & Len through the Mercedes Club social functions some years ago. Those were happy times and we always enjoyed seeing them. Gloria used to tell me wonderful stories about her California pioneering family from up in the Gold Rush Country. She had a wonderful, warm smile and you always felt good being around her. We send our deepest sympathy to Len and the family.

Gloria - I miss you already! You were always a best friend. Even when we would go months without seeing one another - when we were together it was as if we were together every day. I believe I am the most blessed person around for having you for a best friend. Most go through a lifetime without having crossed paths with a true friend. Thank you for crossing my path. I will always love you.
