I knew Gloria from our days working at UVa and they were so fortunate to have had such an exceptional, empathetic human being! Gloria was pure gold! Rest in peace, dear Gloria.

Another member lost. I worked with Gigi at Leggett. I went on to work at UVA, where I saw her on the regular basis. Gloria (she no longer wanted to be called Gigi) was always a happy and positive person. She was one of those people you loved being around. She just made the day more pleasant. Rest in peace my buddy.

I am deeply sadden to hear about Gloria's (Glo) passing. Such a wonderful person, since I moved away we lost touch but it was good to see her whenever we ran across path when I was in town. She was a neighbor of my grandmother, we worked at UVA at the same time, I was her hairstylist many many years ago. Keep her memories in your heart.
