I know the tears I cry are for myself, for you are with our Lord Jesus Christ in the glory of heaven safe from the troubles of this world. I will hang on to the memories and the lessons you taught me with much love and care until I see you again above. Miss you mom and love you more than I can express.

A sweet and loving kind person, if you had the pleasure of knowing Gloria Jean. I grew up in church with her. I don’t know where to start with all that she was to so many. For sure, she is in Heaven. Prayers for Roy, Sherry, Shanda and grandsons. God Bless. Susie (Mitchell)

Oh my beautiful, sweet mama! Words cannot express how much pain I feel. I lost a part of me. There will always be an emptiness there that only you could fill. I love you so, so much, and I miss you. I know you are with Jesus and heaven gained another angel. You taught me so much, encouraged me, and your wisdom and strength was a light for so many people. I love you mama!
