Ms. Juanchellise always had a kind word of Dug when she’d see him on his morning walk. And even mean-old Dug wouldn’t bark at her. Heaven was clearly missing its angel – because she shone bright like the sun while here on Earth. My deepest condolences to Ms. Gwen and her family.

Juan and I grew up together at Oak Grove ES and Lakeside HS. We weren’t close friends, but she was a familiar presence throughout my childhood. Always kind, soft-spoken and gentle. In October 2019, I got to see her at our class reunion and give her a hug. I am so thankful for that now and am greatly saddened that she is gone too soon. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. Juan, I will remember you and celebrate your life. John 14:1-4 – With Love, Chip
