After her passing a card was found in her wallet containing the following Irish Blessing: ‘May God grant you always’¦ A sunbeam to warm you, a moonbeam to charm you, a sheltering angel so nothing can harm you. Laughter to cheer you. Faithful friends near you. And whenever you pray, heaven to hear you.’ Amen. Funeral Services for Mrs. Gloria Ann Harwell are private.
