    The thing I remember most of Gloria at the Capitol is her knowing, or knowing where to find, the name and/or phone number of anyone you asked about. She was always willing to help so if we didn't know who or what we asked Gloria and nine out of ten times she came up with a good answer. You have been missed by many of us for a long time, Gloria. I hope you are enjoying a walk around Heaven today. Maybe you have already run into Joe Thomas and Pat Buckley who both left this earth about the same time you did.

    Dear Gloria,
    What a pleasure it was to have known you through our work at the OK State Capitol. You were always smiling and had a great story to tell that was usually funny as well. Thank you for being part of my life, sweet friend.
