Dear Milt & Family,
We were so very sorry to learn of Gwen's passing. Gwen was a grand lady and anyone that was lucky enough to have met her would have come away with a deep appreciation for life and loving of family. I remember many fun times at the cabin, she was always so charming and had a zest for life...what a joy she was..and will always remain so in our hearts.
The world has lost someone very, very special.
Our love & Prayers,
Jeanne & Kirby Quinn
