Brian, Tiffany and Grandson,
I’m so sad to read about Gloria’s passing. She was so special to me, always kind and courteous. When I’d come by before a trip to discuss the care of her beloved cat, Dorian, she ALWAYS had prepared fresh baked crumpets, fresh whipped cream, and hot tea. We (she, Brian and I) would catch up, laugh and share special experiences we’d had in our pasts. Rest in peace, sweet lady. I know you’re tenderly taking care of all the animals in Heaven.
