To Frank Powaza

I am so sorry to learn of the loss of your wife. My deepest sympathy. May happy memories comfort you at this sad time.

You helped me so greatly about 35 years ago. You gave me the tools to help me through life and how to handle losses throughout life. Thank you.

My condolences,

Kathleen Kelley

Frank, and all of Gloria's family,

I was so sorry to hear of your, and our, loss of our caring, accomplished and brilliant Gloria. As you know, Frank, we had kept in touch for a goodly period of time after she left the VNA, but at some point, probably when my computer had crashed, I lost your email addresses. Gloria, now born to Eternal Life and Love in our Savior, and you and all the family are and will remain in my prayers.

Ever grateful for having the blessing of knowing and working with Gloria,

Jim Cosgrove
