    Gloria lived in the same building next door to my grandparents for years. She was a good and kind neighbor to them and I am sorry to see that we lost her so soon.

    My deepest sympathy to Gloria’s family. I always enjoyed my conversations with Gloria in regards to her support work on the NICU. She always appreciated the preemie sleepers that I bought for the Unit’s use even though I never had a preemie myself. She will be missed and remembered by many.
