I will never forget the first time I met Gwen & her boys in the bean patch, it was love. They became part of my family. Although through the years we lost touch you were never out of my heart. I am so proud to have known you & as you are reaping the rewards of your labor & dancing with our good friend Jesus save me a seat at the table I'll see you soon. Love always Mrs. Lin
