Gwen my dear cousin,
I always thought that you were beautiful inside and out. I will truly miss your smile and hugs. You always made me fill special when we talked and gave me some Jesus as well. I doesnt seem as if its been 50+ years of loving you. We have some fun times. No one will never out dance you. You had the moves. I often reminded of you when I am watching someone dancing on TV.
Yesterday it was a beautiful sunset. As the sun was going down, it reminded on ur beauty. I will always remember that beautiful smile
Rest in peace my dear Cousin
