Everybody loved Gwen and we admired her so much for what she was able to overcome. She was like Timex - "Took a licking, and kept on ticking!"
- that was Gwen.

We are all the better for watching her and seeing how she never complained, just moved "Forward." I believe she has....

I adored Gwen and loved working with her when I was employed at Examinetics. We would be ornery together and get a good laugh. She was an amazing coworker, friend, and woman. She will be dearly missed. My condolences to her family. I know she was so proud of you all.
