Dear Frank, John, Stephen and Robert, Auntie Gwen was very dear to me, and my heart aches with her passing. I have many fond memories of times spent with my cherished Aunt (and Godmother) and you boys. There was always lots of giggling and laughter. When it was time to depart and head home, Auntie Gwen was always the first to say "I love you" and her love for each of you, and us, lives on. She was kind and generous, lots of fun, and a most loving Aunt. I'm so sorry that you've lost your Mom. Her memory lives in each of us.
With love, Susan Heming (& Colin Sewell), Vancouver BC

Dear Gwen,
My Wife, Daughter and I will miss seeing you. You were so great, I will miss the long conversations we had in our backyards, talking about our dogs your "boys" and how proud you were of them and how good they all were to you. I will miss seeing Gracie and Abby and talking to John. You were an excellent neighbor and friend and I wish I had the chance to say bye, we will miss you lots but we are glad you are in a better place now feeling no more discomfort.

Dear Rob and Christine,
My thoughts are with you at this difficult time. Christine has shared how you have cared so faithfully for your Mom Rob and the deep love you had for her and the helplessness that comes with wanting to do the right thing and not knowing what that is to make things better. Although I have never known Gwendolyn, she sounds like she was an amazing person who gave of herself to make your life better. May it bring comfort to know that others care.
With Sympathy, Beth Day
