We grieve with you in the loss of your sister and our good friend, Gwennie. Her friendship over the years blossomed just as easily as her flowers did. She blessed us with her affection through cards, letters, visits and beautiful bouquets from her garden. She always witnessed to us about her faith and love for the Lord Jesus. This shining spirit of God's love will be a wonderful memory of Gwen from now on. We are sorry for your loss, and we share in it. But we are confident of Gwen's joy in the presence of her dearest friend, Jesus.

My condolences to the family. Take comfort in God’s loving promise of a resurrection in the future paradise, when Gwendalyn will be able to grown beautiful flower gardens again. John 5:28,29 - “for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”
