Gwen was such a sweet & beautiful person. She was always so nice to me. I remember being in CHS marching band with her. She played clarinet and I was a flag girl. We survived many a "grueling" band practice & were on many a band trip together, those were fun times! So sorry for this loss, may she rest in eternal peace...
