Mike and childre, I am extremely saddened about your unexpected loss. My prayers are with you as you face the coming days and years without Gwen. The whole family and friends are grieving with her passing, but we know she has no more pain and is feeling great. We will meet here again when Jesus comes again. Until then remember all of the good times you had with her. We will carry her in our hearts each time the Schrade's gather and the grandchildren grow carrying on her a part of her.
My sincere sympathy, since I was not able to say this in person. Ginger Dentler McGill
