My name is Anita and I worked with your mother at ResCare. One of the best supervisors I ever worked with, trusted you to do the job you were supposed to do. I have often wondered what happened to her, never went past Winding Lane without thinking of her. I am so sorry that I lost touch with her, she always had your back. I remember a lot of things from the six years I worked there, but the one that stands out is when my grandmother was at the point of death. I got out of my car after going to the nursing home., upset. Gwen put her arms around me and told me that when I was ready that she was holding on until I could accept it. She just held me for a long time.She loved well and everyone loved her. I am so sorry for your loss.
