    We enjoyed meeting Gloria and your entire family while she was at the Davis Health Care Center. Gloria was not only a wonderful room mate for my mom Ann, but an extremely kind, loving and good person. She will remain in our hearts for a long time and she is missed dearly. Sincerely, Sue and Ann Skoda
