I will miss her smile, the sparkle in her eyes, the way she always welcomed me. She was a strong sister in Christ and a light that lent its brightness to everyone around her. Her failing body may be gone, but her influence and dedication lives on in the hearts of those she loved and who love her! I am blessed to be one of those!

I have fond memories of Mr. and Ms. Gwin when I traveled to Somerset working for NAPA. Every time I showed up to Wednesday night services they would invite me to that beautiful home up on the hill. She made the best cookies. One time Quentin took me out in the middle of nowhere to an oil field ... Nancy Ky I believe. Just a wonderful couple who practiced hospitality and were great examples to all who knew them.
