We enjoyed having Gwen work with us in food services while she was able. She ran the cash register perfectly! Even when she was done working with us, it was nice to see her around the agency and get to stop and say hi when I saw her. We are so sorry for your loss.

Sorry for your loss. It's so sad how the ugliness of this world takes such beautiful people away from us. Gwen's kindness is what will be remember by all who knew her, so may we draw comfort from God's promise of a time when no one will ever say; "I am sick". Isaiah 33:24
