Gwen, simply put, was awesome! She loved to dance, enjoy her Coors (the real stuff not that lite, watery version) and candy. And, let’s not forget her love of watching football on TV. Ask her who was playing... “I don’t know, but I like the team with the blue uniforms” often would be her reply. But, most of all, she loved her family! God bless you, Gwen, and dance all you want among the stars.
