Gloria Collins was extraordinary woman. I enjoyed every minute I spent with her. I loved her laugh the days we would watch friends and last man standing all day, sitting on the back patio just enjoying each other’s company. So sorry to her wonderful family she was well loved by everyone. Fly high Gloria gone but never forgotten. Love and miss you!!
