    Gwendolyn is now resting in the arms of Jesus. May the Family find comfort in knowing that persons that knew Her are praying for You. Remember that God makes no mistakes when He call Our Love ones home. Remember John 14:1-6. Gwendolyn and I grew up in the Mount Hermon Neighborhood.

    Gwen is the name we called her from childhood to adults and is the name she’ll always remember her by. She had a heart of gold never losing her focus on unnecessary things. She loved all and showed it in the way she treated you. No matter when you spoke to Gwen she was always happy to see you and give a big smile. She’ll Always Be With You: “You’ll always remember how it felt to laugh with her and be loved by her. I hope those memories will bring comfort in time.” Please know that you will be truly missed. Condolences to you and the family.

    Letting go is hard. We recognize that the final release of a love one is painful but we have God’s promises to see us through, ” those who belong to Him-are precious to. Though they die, they’re be alive again.
    Have comfort in knowing we will in God’s presence forever- praying and thanking God-“Precious Father, thank You for the promise of eternal life in Your presence.
    Gwen, may you Rest in Peace with your earthly mother and father as well as our Father in Heaven.
    My prayers for the family

    To the family
    When great souls die, the air around us becomes light, rare, sterile.
    We breathe, briefly. Our eyes, briefly see with a hurtful clarity
    Our memory, suddenly sharpens–These are yours to holdfast to- these memories will make healing easy.
    May the grace of God keep you .
    In prayer-heartfelt sympathy
