Not sure what to say?

Gwen was at the front desk the first time I came to the library as a child. And she is a big reason why I became a librarian and was thrilled to be able to serve the Andrews community as she had. She and Charlie were such wonderful people and I know they are missed by many still.
Thoughts, love and prayers are with you and your family.

It was a privlige to be a guest in Gwen's house on many occasions as a close friend to the Alcorn/Pearcy family. Puzzles, crosswords, meals and good times.

My Condolences and prayer to the Alcorn Family. Prayers flow as a rushing river
