I was so sorry to hear of Gayle’s passing over the weekend. My Grandmother, Ruth moved to Independent Living at Country Club late last year. Gayle was so sweet to her and helped so much with her transition. We will forever be grateful for her friendship. At one point, my Grandmother had been feeling bad for a couple of days. Gayle greeted her with an excited hug and told her how much she had missed her. It gave us such comfort to know that she had an extra pair of eyes looking after her. Gayle loved to talk about her children and grandchildren and made a point of sharing snacks and candy our little ones when they would visit. We will miss her greatly.
You were a great Mother-in-law and will be sorely missed. God Bless.
God bless Aunt Gail
God Bless you Gailyn. You will be missed! You had a heart of gold and loved your family dearly. Will miss the pictures of all of your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I love you and will miss you especially when I will not be receiving any more happy birthday phone calls you always made. You never forgot! Love, Billie Jo (your baby Sister)
RiP Aunt Gayle. Love and miss you!! I still have the beautiful purple blanket you made for me. I keep it in a very special place.
Spent many days and nights in your home with my best friends who were like my sisters. We shared many laughs and danced to our favorite, Elvis! Thank you for sharing your home and your daughters with me.
