    Please accept my condolences on the death of your beloved mother, grandmother, daughter and sister. Gloria was a wonderful person in so many ways, with her inspiration, thoughtfulness, kindness and intelligence. I know she will leave a vast emptiness in your lives. I did not really know her, until lately when we both lived in Calgary. She was truly a lovely person and I am glad I got to know her. I hope her legacy lives on in you.
