To everyone in Gwen's family,
Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the passing of your mother/aunt/sister. I hope you find some comfort in knowing that she was a great woman with a heart of gold,and treated any person as her own including me.
She was always ready for a game of cards, had a smile that could brighten any ones day, and a laugh that was so contagious.
She maybe gone, but will never be forgotten. Xoxo

Much love from Jamie and Brad Focht
