    Sister Hanni,

    My mom sent me an email saying that Gloria passed away. It saddens me to hear but she really will be so happy with your father. She was such a sweet lady. as you can imagine bringing the sacrament out to the sick or older members on Sundays wasn’t usually something that had the young men jumping out of their seats to volunteer when we were tired and wanted a nice Sunday nap. But the second we entered into your house it was all worth it haha. you and your mother were always so sweet and kind and I’d rather visit you two on a Sunday afternoon than go take a nap. The peanuts and chocolate were always well appreciated as well (even though I always gave the chocolate to my mom) but the best part was seeing your moms face light up as we came in and feeling the nice firm handshake she still always gave. I’ll never forget it, it’s sad I won’t get the opportunity to go give her the sacrament again, but I’m grateful for all the chances I got. She will be missed, by me and every young man who got to meet her. And I know she’s going to be cheering the jazz on from upstairs! they’ll win a championship for sure this year! thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family sister Hanni!
