Gwen was always friendly with everyone. Even though I didn't hang out with her, I consider her one of my friends. She was a great person to know. I miss her twin brother Gordon as well. I haven't seen or heard from him in years. He and I had art together for 3 years. He and I had lots of fun.

Gordon and Gwen were both good friends in school, from middle school through high school. I met them when "we" uppity east side kids were bussed to Midvale Jr. High from Cottonwood Heights each day and they were just great to know back then.

Gwen always, always seemed to be wiser and older than her years. Very cool, very cool.
