It is with a very heavy heart I am writing this memory. Gayle was such a very special person, she brought wit, charm and kindness to our family. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched. My regret is that I did not see her more often when in Florida. I am so sorry for her passing, and for your loss. She will be missed.
