I didn't know my Aunt Gwennie very well. I actually never knew anyone on my father's (William C. Carr who died almost 4 years ago) side of the family. But I do remember seeing Gwen a few times when I was growing up. I really wish I had the opportunity to have relationships with the Carr family. I feel I missed out on a lot. God Bless you Gwen. My condolences to her family and friends.

I knew my aunt Gwen from nearly the day I was born as I was brought home from the hospital to the same Medfield house where she,and the extended family lived.
Within a year Gwen married and moved to North Scituate where she lived the rest of her life.I really became reacquainted with her and her husband,Uncle Darrow at about age 6 when we started to visit her.From then on,I realized what a wonderful person I had for an aunt.
There were unannounced visits by my cub scout den,the world's best grilled cheese sandwiches (saw the 60 or 70 year old electric grill a couple of years ago),acquisition of cars at a favorable price during my earlier,poorer years,hosting of my 25th wedding anniversary at her house,staying at her house when visiting home on home leave---even watching the moon landing at her house.
Gwen put up with my foibles and offered nothing but support and love.
Was she perfect?Close to it.
Despite having seen her infrequently over the last few years due to her condition,I will miss her terribly.
A few more Gwen Parks in this world would improve us greatly.

Carolyn, Sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She always stopped by our house when she was visiting Thorn and Gladys and she always had a smile on her face. I know she was my dad's favorite also. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
