  1. Always “Auntie Gwen”. The feeling I just felt from the news of your passing… no words. My prayers& condolences to Uncle Tony and everyone in the family. The angel we had among us here on earth is now above in the heavens filling in all&any blanks of space,time or words for any other angels with her simple phrase that never broke from the Island’s………… “DA KINE”!!! I love you Auntie Gwen! You’ve always been missed in my life,you’re even more missed now&every day here on out will only define the word “missed” to an unanticipated degree.
    Love,Shauna.
