I continue to ask God to comfort Gwen's mom. I also want to thank my family and friends for their prayers and support through this difficult time. My heart will stop hurting with time as I remember the wonderful memories Gwen & I shared. Fishing at Cedar Key, working in the yard, watching birds and deer over morning coffee, seeing the space shuttle shoot across the dark night sky, listening while she talked about her life's adventures and feeling like I was right there with her, watching as she dragged branches and trees with a chain and her purple Nissan. Nothing stood a chance when Gwen had her truck and chain... :) Gwen's seemingly effortless talents are seen in everything she did. Sophisticated, & strong . Her ethics, morals and values were solidly instilled in her by her mother and grandparents. I am truly blessed to have had the honor of sharing my life with someone who had so much love to give. Gwen touched many hearts and impacted lives by giving of herself unselfishly Rest peacefully, Gwen, knowing that you fought life's battles with honor and grace in God's eyes. I love you forever & ever and not a day less. Until I see you again...
