Gwen is a pure delight to be cherished forever by her adoring family and friends. Her Canadian roots touches my heart ,since that is my choice of vacation. She will love catching up on her travels in paradise. What a sweet heart caring for the patients. Almighty God will remember her and resurrect her to paradise where there will be no more sickness, pain, or death.Rev 21:3,4 The miracle of the resurrection will motivate all to sing praises to God forever. John 5:28,29 There will be no more war under Christ’s heavenly Kingdom government. Isaiah 9:6,7 This perfect rulership will replace imperfection. Daniel 2:44 “Enjoy Life Forever” , JW.org will give you comfort. Christian love, Sandy Wirfs
