My deepest sympathy in this time of your sorrow. Gwen was a special person to me. She showed love for everyone she met, she was very given in her her talents to show people how to make things. She was so proud to be John's wife and Jessica's mom and she glowed when she talked her of her grandson. She will truly be missed by all of us who knew her well. God Bless this family for the love they shared and for what is yet to come.

☆ Dear Lord, when I am sad, you give me hope. When I am lost, you offer me direction and guidance. When I am alone, you stand beside me. When my heart aches with sorrow, you bring me new blessings. Thank you for your gifts of grace, of love, and of healing. Amen. Ecclesiastes 3:1 "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven." I will sorely miss Mrs. Gwen ♥ My! Boeuf River Baptist Church "choir-buddy" {she would giggle her kind of sweet laugh when I'd call her that, she stood/sat to my left on the front pew in the choir loft & the front line of chairs in the choir room} Loved her beautiful blue eyes! I love you, Jessica ♫ Mr. John been missing your Sunday School teaching/music directing. ★ God understands our Prayers even when we can't find the words to say them. http://youtu.be/KAKtVuUORMk "Pass it On" with lyrics With Sympathy from The Coleman Family: Mr. Kenneth, Mrs. Lori, Kenney & Raymond xoxoxoxo
