Dear Jerry & Family, Chuck and I dearly loved Gwen! She was a kind and generous friend. She would do anything to help at Vought, and she always went the extra mile to get the job done. Most of all she had the sweetest spirit, and she loved the Lord. When we were working together, she spoke so often about moving back to Birmingham. I'm so glad y'all did. She will always live in my memories. Love, Sandy and Chuck Canton

Our prayers,
Gwen was always a great help at Vought, had explanations about how stuff works here in Texas, and had many inspiring stories of Alabama.

Jerry and Family our thoughts and prayers are with you. I had the pleasure of working closely with Gwen for several years at Vought. She was a truly wonderful person and a very thorough and thoughtful employee. She was the Group adminestrator for Systems Engineering and Logistics when I was the Manager there. She will be truly missed by so many of us who had the pleasure of knowing her.

So sorry for your loss. Gwen was a dear friend of mine. I helped her get over her math aversion, and she helped me in many ways. Prayers for you now.

Jerry and Family - Gwen and I worked many hours together at Vought. She was such a dedicated and conscientious worker. I was so proud for her when she earned her college degree, I knew how hard she worked for it. What a wonderful Christian example and legacy she left. John Pimm (former Director of Engineering)

Jerry and Family - I am so sorry to hear about Gwen. Wish I was close
enough to be with you but will be thinking of you all. Gwen was a very
special friend thru our school years at Bethel. I will always remember her
and the good times we had together.
