About Gwendolyn

( 1 ) I love people, I feel great when I can put a smile on their face, and a hug has this healing power we all need. (2) While caring for my husband, I felt this warmth, a fulfillment in making him comfortable. While working in a nursing home, the patients there needed to feel as if they still mattered.. and to assure them they did, still makes me smile. (3) Caring for and loving my husband until God called his name, and being most honored to have shared in his peace as he took his last breath.
