I would like to say to the Woodard family that your mom was an angel on earth. She was always so sweet and caring and always with love. She pick my sprites up many a time. I was a class mate and friend of Lori’s. Zane and I cross paths many times and I a lot of fun. Lane and I became friends my senior year. Then I work with Le at OCF and I was lucky again to have your mom in my life. I finish as I started she was an angel on earth as she will be in heaven. Eddie Pylant

Heaven gained another angel to help stand guard and protect us. Mrs. W so graciously accepted me into her family nearly 30 years ago and was like a second mom to me. Especially after I lost my own mother. She would always introduce me as her "adopted" daughter. She was a wonderful woman, always so bright and vibrant. I loved her dearly and will miss her. My heart is heavy with her passing. RIP Gloria!

If I could possess half the style, class, grace and kindness as Gloria! I admired her greatly and aspired to be more like her. I'm truly blessed to have known her and to love her! She always treated me like family!
My deepest sympathies to Le, Lori, Kelly, Zane, Lane and Curtis. Gloria will be greatly missed.
