Condolence: I had the pleasure of working with Gloria at Long Branch High School in the ESL program. I knew immediately that she was a wonderful educator and admired her ability to connect with students. On a personal level she helped me as I prepared to return to teaching after several years of maternity leave. She was kind, loving and talented. Her family must have wonderful memories of her. My heartfelt condolences to them.

Condolence: Gloria, and I met working at Lerners in Manhattan. Gloria trained me to take her position when she was going on maternity to give birth to her daughter Lorraine. We became close Friend from that day on. I baby-sat from time to time, when her and Homer would got out! All three visited with our Family in California. On another occassion Gloria visited with us in California for my Daughter's baby-shower. We kept in touch all these years. We as a Family visited with her shortly after Homer passed.
Gloria was such a jewel. She took no crap form anyone, and spoke her mind. There was just no messing around with this women. And that why we got along so well! Two typical Puerto Rican Bronx born Divas!!! My Friend will be truly missed!!!!
