Gwen was independent, caring, and loved her family unconditionally. She loved sitting on the porch enjoying the evening air and watching the sunset.  She loved going on road trips, outings to Wendover, camping and NASCAR on Sundays. She never forgot a birthday and was crazy about drinking a Coke or two.
