My Story

Gwen, we used to call her “Gwennie” or simply “Gwendolyn”. She was a sister, friend, and a warrior in and out. At the beginning of her life, mom used to call her the miracle baby. Gwen was born when mom was in her weakest emotional and health condition. Mom never thought that God would give her a wonderful life ahead. Gwen was a tall gal she stood at least 5’11 in height, skinny and long-haired. Gwen’s unique physical feature was her warts on her left ear and a big mole on her right hand middle finger. I only have limited memories about her. We never got the chance to be so close due to unexpected occurrences in our family life. I could only remember we used to have the same birth date and the worst enemies as sisters rivalry. Gwen was the most affected member of the family when our parents got separated. Gwen wanted to go with mom but faith did not permit. Gwen managed her to be strong and to be at her best. Gwen promised mom that someday she would make a way to bond our family as one. We grew up with separate lives. We seldom saw each other. All I knew Gwen was an honor student and had devoted her time serving the Lord. In the family I can say that she had the strongest faith in the Lord. Gwen liked writing poems and reading inspirational and pocket books. Gwen has this wide collection of Archie’s comic books. She even asked Auntie Rosa who was in New Jersey to send her copies of latest Archie’s and Sabrina comic books. Gwen was also into R&B music. She liked to listen to Mariah Carey because Gwen was so fascinated with Mariah’s voice. She also liked to collect pictures, all kinds of pictures. Gwen preferred staying at home rather than going out with friends. She liked cooking and her yaya said that she was a good cook. 

Gwen was a serious gal who brightened our lives with her smile and grace. At the peak of Gwen's young and simple life, no one thought that her life will end in a tragic way. We thought that she would be a successful career-woman and would have a family of her own to grow old with. Gwen gave her last breath for everyone eyes to be open. Gwen touched thousands of people to fight injustice and crime. It was hard to accept that someone’s life must be taken in order to demand government action for peace and security of the country. Gwen’s prayers worked in a miraculous way. I know she wasn’t prepared for this and our family as well. God has His own special plan for her life. We may not understand it but that’s how life works. Life was full of mysteries. Today, we are gathered here for funeral and a celebartion becasue Gwen would have had it no other way.We are confident that Gwen is now with our creator. She will be in our heart forever. I thank you Sister Gwen that I became part of your life's journey. We will always be proud of you. “In God everything is possible”. Gwen was mommy’s girl. Gwen was big sister’s favorite. Gwen was big brother’s baby girl. She is our guardian angel. May God Bless you all and give you comfort. We love you.
