My heart goes out to all of Gloria's family. We'd reconnected via the computer and we wrote back and forth for some time. Finally, I was headed down to see her and called but she told me I'd best not come....that they were down with the flu. After that, we just seemed to lose touch again and that too makes me sad. So many memories..Please know that you are all in my thoughts and my prayers daily. I am so very sorry for your loss. Wanda Shannon
