    Our sincerest condolences and deepest sympathies. My Great Aunt Gwen will always have a special place in my heart. I loved when we visited her. She was a very sweet lady who had a wonderful smile. She was undeniably pleasant and dignified in her manner.
    She reminded me of my grandfather Harry.
    A beautiful soul is at rest.
    Our thoughts go out to her immediate family at this time.
