    So sad! Our hearts go out to the Platon and Oriel families. Even our daughter Angie feel so sad. We came to know Glo and the Oriel family through the Santo Nino Prayer Group when Aurora & Zenaida, the twins joined them in the 80’s. Your loss is also ours. She was so sweet and loving! Flor is there to welcome her finally. No more pains! We will never forget you. We added your name to our list of deceased family & friends. May you rest in peace!

    Our deep sympathy for the passing of a dear friend and sister in Christ. Gloria has always been loving and caring to everyone who crosses her path. She was an inspiration especially on her commitment to prayer meetings, Filipino masses, novena prayers for the dead. She brought people together through her leadership on occasions like the Sta Cruzan, Feast of Sto Nino even driving her van to bring people to these events. She will be remembered as a very generous, kind, loving, entertaining friend. We love you Gloria. Gene Evita and family.
