  3. I would like to send my heartfelt sympathies for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. I met Gloria 7.5 years ago when I moved into the south view complex. Both her and Sharon came over and welcomed me to the community. I didn’t realize at the time that she had a chair by the garbage cans that she use to sit in and watch various things. So I took the chair thinking it was garbage and we laughed about that for years. I was always aware of her presence and her kindness in the community. She was a mother figure to us all and knew everyone by name and how long they had been there. She was a force to be reckoned with. I find it very quiet in my apartment now I don’t hear the vacuum or the phone ring or the conversations outside my window with various neighbours I couldn’t have asked for a better neighbour she will be sorely missed. God bless Earth Angel.

    It was with a heavy heart as I read of Gloria’s passing. My deepest sympathies are sent to the entire McCartney family. I have many happy memories of Gloria. Her stories of ‘back home’. Her laughter, kindness, generousity and cooking. OH! What WONDERFUL COOKING! I know she will be missed by all who knew her.

    Rest in Peace & Thank You ‘Mom’.
