Saddened to read. I know it’s in another post(PBR News Updates) but thought she should have her own designated post.I think there are many others who may not check the PBR Updates post that would like to know to pay their respects.
My sincere condolences to Steve Young and family and friends.

Well...this one is hard to write. I want to convey the meaning but without running on. How to summarize with appreciation and respect and love a multi-fascetted relationship that lasted nearly 35 years. Tonite at about 8PM, just 4 hours before her birthday, we lost Gloria Pullar to join the pinball arcade in the heavens.
Gloria joined me in Sept 1994 as my first employee to help build PBR. She was leaving an IBM career during their downsizing and was crazy enough to believe enough in me and that I could provide her a steady paycheck and an opportunity. We had been together since 1987, but to add a business relationship to a personal one was uncharted territory for both of us. It worked. Her faith in me was all-important to me and unending until the end.
It is amazing how many long term customers who remember talking and ordering with her on the phone or at a show will ask “how’s Gloria” ask me to give her their regards. She always remembered them and was grateful for their thoughts. Her spirit lives on and will be grateful for their thoughts and prayers.
That’s enough for now. We will all wish her God’s speed in her new home. Game over. Replay and match!
