To the Henry & Elwood Families: I was very sad to hear of Gloria's passing. I spent a lot of time with her during the transition of leaving the Elwood home and moving to her home in Santa Monica near Brentwood. I was all of 20 years old or so. She was very motherly to me giving me advice on my young acting career and life as I was without parents and not family. I will always remember her kindness. I was one of the lucky ones to have known her as a person, not just a Star. Growing up in Canada and coming to Los Angeles at a young age on my own - knowing Gloria was very comforting. I will never forget this wonderful lady. May she rest in eternal peace.

I was a friend of Gloria's son Adam in elementary school. What great young memories I have with Adam. Along was staying at his house with his mom and Dad Craig. Right after the big earthquake in 1971. We were in his parents bedroom watching the news when we felt a big after shock. His parents assured us all were well. She taught me what a stage name was. Adam and his family have been in a place in my heart since. Yes, god bless the angel Gloria Henry. So many of our "Moms".
