To Judy and Ross my deepest condolences. My favourite aunt who I spent many a vacation with and was never at a loss for words will be missed. Rest peacefully Auntie Gwen.
Judy, Ross and family – very sad to hear the news of your Mom’s passing. She was a fantastic Aunt to myself and my siblings, cooked and baked for us when we were kids and lost our mom. Loved her bold honesty, and the chats we would have as she always filled me in on her family’s news. She will be missed. Happy to hear that she died peacefully.
Love Karen and John
To Judy, John and Ross we were very sorry to hear of Aunt Gwen’s passing. She was good so you have to be thankful for that, and she wouldn’t want it to be any other way. She will be missed. Lots of love.

So sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. We just heard recently. She was a wonderful person and remember so many fond memories of her and your Dad.
Thinking of you both.
