Thank you all for your comments. Gwen, was an amazing person. As her husband I remember every adventure we experienced together. I often wondered what she saw in me some 27 plus years ago, but, I'm so grateful that she choose me. I love her with all of my heart and soul. It's funny the word love just does not seem to encompass all that she was to me. We went through so much together. I miss her everyday now. I remember her laugh and I remember how much she worked to make me happy. I remember her laugh but, most of all I miss how she loved me. I miss her happy smile of approval and how much she truly valued me. We could talk about anything. She always thought of me in every detail. We had so many things that we were able to experience together. In the end she and I talked so much about the future and what she wanted for herself for me and for others. She truly is the strongest person I have ever meet and had the privilege to know. As things became clear to her that her health was not going to permit her to go forward, she even showed how much she truly loved me by giving me instructions to move forward with out her. That was a very hard day for us. She said I'm not ready to give you to any one else (I'm selfish - she said), but I know that you have to go on without me and we discussed the plan to move forward. One thing is true that she said, It will be hard without me but, I will see you in paradise. That phrase has become my daily motivation even under a new plan as new things enter my life. I will always love her and I can't wait to welcome her back to let her know just what a true loss she was not only to me but to the countless others. She truly was one of the best decisions I made in my life. Even as I take on the adventure that we mapped out, I will never forget her or the love that I have for her. I can't wait to see the health Gwen. I know she will be as awesome as ever before.

I watched both of you grown to exemplary Christians. Truly appreciating all the good qualities displayed. She always showed me such love and respect, and a special kindness that I will never forget. Very mild and such a gracious "Lady". Truly looking forward to seeing her in perfect health, soon in the new order. Please keep your integrity and stay strong. Do as Jesus did, cry when you need to. It's alright and necessary. It does not make you weak. Keep in touch. My sincere condolences and love.

I love the both of you. Your encouragement from the time you both came to Atlantic was so encouraging. Sis you were an encouragement to all and a well dressed lady. Hoping to see you soon. Love. Kim Richardson.

I will never ever forget the many, many all nighters we pulled playing spades beating up on you (Jerry) and Steve! She always helped me at the hall with Tyler when he was so tiny and got fussy. She also made me my first dump cake and no one has ever made me one as good as hers since. Can’t wait to see my friend again in paradise! ❤️

My wife and I have had the pleasure of knowing Gwen and Jerry. We shared the same congregation in Tucson, Az. I studied with Jerry every Saturday and Gwen joined for those studies. We will forever look back on those days fondly.
