To the Bowers and Combs family. Gloria and I were very good friends while she was at Urbana High. Her dad would take Georgia Bailey and myself to the tournament games in Troy when the basketball team was playing. We would have slumber parties at her house every once in a while. She and I have kept in touch every Christmas. She came to see me at my dad's viewing in 2005. She was so proud of all her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I am heart broken about her death because I've moved back to the area and I hadn't called her. I am so sorry for your loss. Donna Hiltibran Hays
