In my thoughts & prayers
So very sorry for your loss. Gwen will truly be missed. Praying for your family.
I was in Gwen's high school class at Mountain View. She was always a nice classmate but I didn't learn until the past 12 months how strong she expressed her Christian Faith. She has stayed in touch with me due to my illness as she often wanted to know how I was doing and to let me know that she was praying for me. In a recent text from her, I knew she was not doing good but this is her quote: "I always say if you can get out and around you have to be thankful every day. I thank God every day that I am doing as good as I am." Gwen was a great example for all of us to follow and she will be missed by many. Boyce Rorie, Mountain Home, Arkansas
