One time Bobby tried to go home to Charleston without me. When Gwen found out she made him turn around and come back to get me. She said it would not be the same without me. She made me family and I will never forget how special that was for me.

I worked with her for a couple years and last talked to her a few months ago. She was a really an amazing, confident, and sincere person. She was the one to count on and could run circles around anyone else in her field. We all loved her and you could see the atmosphere change when she walked in the door. She could talk 200 words a minute and type even faster. Everyone In our team called each other “chip” (story is ridiculous and too long) so, since she was the only girl and our sister, we called her “Chipette”. She didn’t call me chip though, she would refer to me as “Rabbit” (earlier and even dumber story) because that was the name she liked best. My mood would brighten up when I heard her voice and it hurts me deeply to know my ears will never hear it again.

Gwen was the kind of person that people were drawn to, the kind of person everyone wanted to be around. She had presence and personality like no other. She was one of the most motivated, hard working, ambitious people I have ever met. A pitbull, with the smile to match. I have her to thank for two of my greatest gifts, and her spirit will live on through them. Gone, but never forgotten. We will carry on her memory, everyday.

As infants, my daughter Deacy Dee and Gwen were only 5 months apart. I have pictures of the two cuddled in their blankets and cooing at each other. It breaks my heart to see that Gwen's life was cut so short and with children as well. It demonstrates that life is so precious and we no not the day nor the time when the Lord calls. My deepest sympathy goes out to Bobby Dee, Corina and the entire family; Vicki, Lisa, William, Christopher, Gary and the rest. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. May God bring comfort and peace during this incredibly difficult time.

Hi Ninang, this news really hurt my heart. I can’t believe you’re gone. I’m sitting here in my car crying because it just doesn’t feel real. Remember when you first met me, my Daddy made you put on a mask and told you I was sick? And you believed it? 😂 May you Rest In Peace. I love you, Ninang. We will meet again soon. ❤️
