My sincerest condolences to Glory's family. She was my Aunt Dot's roommate at Countryside and whenever I went to see my aunt, I loved visiting with Glory as well. Her wit was so sharp and she would always make me laugh! It also amazed me how she seemed to know everyone from the town of Milford! She will be truly missed.
