Gloria was my friend in high school. We lost track of each other over the years. I wish I could have seen her before her death. My condolences go to Jerry and her family.

Gloria and I went to school from Kindergarten until we graduated from Mason City High School in 1961. I always had a beautiful girl in front of me on lines in school. Lines were in alphabetical sequence and of course Coon followed Cook....I found out yesterday I will be in line again with her as my cancer has me again my time is short. Jerry my heart and prayers are for your family. Jeff and Liz
