    My heart is very torn to find out that my favorite cousin has is Heaven Bound. Even though I have not seen her in awhile. She is always in my thoughts and the memories, pictures, growing up together, going to school together will remain in my memory forever. I love you Gwen... I always have and always will. Hope to be with you soon. You are no longer in pain, have to deal with a world full of sickness, you will no longer feel sadness and best of all..... you are in Heaven.... Angels are our servents in Heaven... Tell yours to send me a sign that you are ok..... I love you Gwen..... Marsha, Billy, Rain, Chris, Cameron and family.....
