I wouldn't be in NYC today without my beginnings at the Nederlander, without Gloria Hill. I will always remember her smile, positive energy and intelligence: she never miss-spelled my name and my name is quite challenging..

May God be with you, dear Gloria! My heart is with the family and friends.

Much Love,
