My beautiful auntie Gloria! I don’t know were to start other then saying we are going to miss you so much. God called on an Angel to come home, now you can enjoy being with family and friends. There are so many memories that I have about you that I just can’t say them all. This is the time for us to celebrate your life and live on with the memories that we have. Thank you auntie for everything we will miss you and I cant wait till the day we meet again!
Love Sam Hernandez.
My deepest condolences to the Jimenez family. I was named Gloria after her because she was my mom’s childhood best friend and through their teen age years and then life happened and they went their separate ways to raise families of their own. But I’m sure every time my mom said my name she would think of her friend Gloria. God Bless everyone who had a part in her life. I never got to meet her but I felt like I knew her because my mom would talk about her and fun things that they did together. My mom said ” now she (Gloria ) was a true friend. Many blessing to the family. May she rest in peace.
