Our deepest condolences to you Steve and family & friends. Though we've never met Gwen, Steve you spoke about her so much & of the wonderful woman she was. Her beauty was breathtaking. Heaven must be that much more beautiful with an angel like Gwen. I love you big brother. Jeff & myself have & will keep you & the family in our prayers. ✝ R.I.P. Gwen
