Oh, Sister Sargent! I will miss her, so much! I will miss our texts, emails, and talks. I will miss her voice and laughs. I will miss sharing own little section, in the back of our church, and worshipping with her. Lord knows I will miss her. We will meet again. Sister Sargent now rests with the Angels.

Gwen worked with me in Oak Cliff when I was a Rookie Sergeant at SW Patrol Division in the 1970's, and when she was a Rookie Police Officer. She again worked with me as a Senior Corporal/Detective in GID,Property Recovery until I retired in 1996. She was a very good Police Officer,and a Good Undercover Cop when on special duty assignments for the DPD. She was always easy to supervise and was a tireless worker who offered many suggestions on how to fight crime. I always admired and respected her. I am so sorry to hear of her passing,and she will be missed. May Godspeed and RIP my OLD FRIEND, my Sister in Blue. John R. Allen ,Ret. DPD & Ret. Alvarado PD
