  8. Prayer to Glorias family and friends. She was a amazing lady, truly one of a kind. Always had a smile on her face and if you talked to her you did too.

  9. May the peace of God surround all of you at this time of grief, but also joy knowing positively that your wife, mother and grandmother is in the presence of her Savior Jesus Christ, to whom she dedicated her life. I am blessed that I was able to know her and all of you when we lived in Havana and went to church together. Gloria was always a blessing in our shepherding group and at Bible study and wanted to know all she could about the word of God. She has now joined that great cloud of witnesses who are present at the throne of Jesus praising his name and completely pain free, never to suffer again. May all of you find comfort in this and look expectantly to the day you will join her in the heavenly realms. Ps. 30:5, 11; Is: 40:29-30; Rev. 21:4.
