  1. I truly enjoyed spending time with Gwen while employed at The Sparrow House. She was an absolute character and filled the room with laughter with her quick words… whatever they were! It was a pleasure meeting Ron and Amy. I’m sorry she’s not physically here, but SHE will always be remembered ❤️.
