Heaven gained an angel! Although I didn't know her for long, I can say in our short conversations that she was truly a beautiful soul. I will forever cherish her kind words to me, "You can call me Grandma Gwen". Her desire to know about her great grandkids made me love and appreciate the fact that a piece of her flows through our children. May she rest in peace ❤.
