McKeever Family - Dear friends: Marilia and I (Joe Rodrigues) and our brasilian family want to say that we love Gloria (for us, she is still alive, because good people never died! Ken, Linda and all the Mckeevers: be strong and keep going. She lived a beautiful life! She always was a good friend of mine, during my one year in Farmington Community High School, when I was living with the Guidi's Family (Elmer, Marj, Brad, Cathe and Todd and the whole family). And she never forgot to write to me all those years from 1966 till recently. Great friend!
Love always, Joe, Marilia and family (Curitiba, Paraná State, Brasil).

McKeever Family......what a wonderful life Gloria has led and to be a part of the greatest generation ever is such a bonus. So happy to have been able to enjoy Gloria during her Farmington years and missed her when she moved. It's so hard to lose our parents no matter their age but our memories are priceless. Thinking of you all - Connie

To Gloria’s Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. My mom, Minnie Cebuhar, loved talking to Gloria on the phone and sending letters back and forth. I’ve heard wonderful stories about our moms in high school. I hope they are together right now reminiscing about the old days.
Sincerely, Diane Cebuhar Parkinson
