Convention. What a sweet and loving friend she became over the many
years we knew her. She was precious. Our heart and prayers go out to
you all. What a true blessing to know we will one day be able to give her a
hug and enjoy worshiping our loving Father together. God Bless you all.

I am so sorry to hear that your beautiful daughter Gwen has left will
surly leave an empty place in your heart and home.  It brings comfort to
know she is with Jesus and can sit back listening to the music of angels,
the words of comfort and love from the mouth of God.  Her suffering over
she has been given a new body healthy and well, a crown of gems adorns
her brow and peaceful joy surrounds her.  May her beautiful life and
memories give comfort in time as you grieve her passing but celebrate the
beauty of her life.
