We knew Gloria as a wonderful, caring sister-in-law to Barry Furrow who was an employee of ours for a time. Gloria really cared about Barry and did everything she could to make sure that Barry was taking care of himself and staying well. We also knew Gloria as a caring vet assistant. KInd, caring people like Gloria are an honor to know. Our thoughts are with the family. - Mary McAllister and John Melvold
