I will not do Gwen justice, but I will try. Gwen was loving, selfless, kind, caring, humble. She was a Christian woman and had the characteristics of one. She opened her heart to me and my four children when they were small, and she helped raise them. She and Ernie spent many holidays with us. She and Ernie would pick them up from school when we needed them to. She was always at their birthday parties and special events. She was very supportive of activities they were involved in. She loved and gave without boundaries. She had a quiet demeanor but was very funny. She could make you laugh with her special sense of humor. I enjoyed her company and it did not matter where we were. We could just be sitting at her kitchen table talking or outside watching the birds or looking at her plants. Gwen was a joy and a God-sent in my life, and I will always, always be thankful for the time I had with her. Every moment was special. She can not be replaced and will always hold that special place in my heart. I look forward to seeing her again.
I love Gwen and even though I will miss her terribly, I'm thankful she whole and in heaven now.
