  • Quotes

    • Gloria Guy: I'll be glad to go in my house, because the memories is there. And I raised a lot of children there. And it's home sweet home. Workin' in the garden; cookin' and doin' what I gotta do. And I thank God for all y'all, working with me and helpin' me, where I could get a house to live in.

  • Notes
