Mike, Dan, Andy and families - It is with great sadness that we just heard today that Gwen had passed away. She was a great person, and always ready to share a good story. Gwen loved her farm, her livestock and her family, and told many a story about the comfort that little Bentley provided her and Paul. Peace and Blessings to the family and I will always remember the special time spent with Gwen. Sincerely, Pearl Bumstead and Brian
