It's hard to believe a year has passed since the loss of Gloria. Every time I pass her house I think of her and Charles...and my mind flashes to both their faces. I can still hear Gloria's kind voice and see her at Steve's fun family bbq's. She was such a beautiful person! I can see her in Deb and when I see her around town - I am again reminded of that wonderful lady. She may have physically left this world, but her memory lives on.

My sincerest condolences to all of the Truax family on Gloria's passing. I truly believe that Gloria was one of those special people whose love of her family has made this world a better place. I remember whenever Gloria spoke to you, you felt that she was truly interested; she'd look deep into your eyes, and there was no doubt about her caring or empathy. May memories and her enduring love be a comfort to you all.

My deepest sympathy to the Truax families on the passing of your wonderful Mom, Gloria. It was always a pleasure to go to the Truax home and your mom always made a fuss about any visitors, especially little ones. There was always something cooking on the stove and a birthday cake for one of the kids..I remember the green and pink icing! Your mom was so warm and welcoming and absolutely loved you kids and grand/great kids. Most of all, I can still hear her laugh. My thoughts are with you at this time and I too am glad to know that your mom and dad are together again. Love Barb

I am so sorry for your loss, my dear cousins, and Tony. What a wonderful mother you had and what a gift we had all had with those McFarlen girls as our moms. They are together again with their little brother Bob. I will treasure the last talk I had with Aunty Gloria just after Christmas. She had such wonderful stories about growing up on the farm that would send us both into fits of laughter. How we will all miss her. Love you all.
