Dear Kathrine, You don' t know me but I knew Gloria real well. My mother was Mary Cary and Gloria would come and visit us quite often. We loved her very much and she will be dearly missed.We are so sorry for your loss. Yours truly, Allan Cary Brophy


Dear Kathy and Family, I am and my children deeply sorry for the passing of Gloria. I loved her like a mom and will always remember our times with her at her condo in Glens Falls. The times we had going out to dinner at her favorite restaurants and kidding her by calling her mom. I'm also glad she attended my wedding in Boston which I have on video. I will never forget her and I'm glad that I can remember her the way I last saw her in good spirits and healthy. May she rest in peace. Love, Carol and children💞🌹
