I always remember my aunt as fun and always laughing. She was a very special lady. She is now with Jesus.

What a great picture of Gayle, this is how I remember her and all the good times we use to have together. May she Rest In Peace now and be rid of such a horrible disease. Thinking of all of you at this difficult time.

Gayle was such a wonderful friend and neighbor to our family. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you find peace and comfort in your happy memories.

Kelly, Lori and Jeff - Your Mom was such a good friend and neighbor. Even after she had Alzheimer's, every time I saw her she still had her same wonderful smile. I'll always remember when she and I were young mothers living across the street from each other, watching our children grow up. Jim and I send you our sympathy. We look forward to celebrating her life with you next Saturday. Ruthie Case
