Pete, Linda, Matthew and Michael, I am so sorry for your loss. Gloria always was full of life and could make a rainy day full of sunshine. Working with her at Fairview Hospital back in the 80´s was the most fun I had and also the most I have learned thru her knowledge. God bless and I hope you find peace in the coming days. Hugs to all.
