I will miss you so much, my wonderful cousin Gloria. We grew up together, had so much fun & love thru the years. You showed me so many things, and we had wonderful times in Canada, and home. You where always the most loving host, you knew no strangers, and loving wife, mother & friend. Miss you, love you, but I will see you one day again. With much love, cousin Patty.
