Dear Sally and Family,
Although I never had the honor of meeting your precious Mother in person, I felt like I knew her because her light shined through you: Your faith, songs, sweet photos and videos always brought a smile to my face. She always looked so angelic and I never saw her without a smile on her face. What a blessing you were to each other. The love shared between and among your family is such a gift. I am sending prayers and hugs to all of you. I know the absence of her physical presence cuts deep, yet she has left an endless treasure of wonderful memories to hold in your heart forever.

Gloria was a kind and giving person, who loved the Lord and gave to others with generosity. She was a special friend, and I will miss her dearly.
