  1. Gayle is the loveliest person I have ever known. I do not use the past tense because she lives in the minds and hearts of those of us who know her.

  4. Lacey Patton says:

    Mimi taught me how to craft and quilt and so many things. She was a wonderful teacher. She loved with everything she had and was very protective of those she loved. She is perfection that no one will ever add up to. We used to watch “I love lucy” and eat fudge pops while crafting. God has gained the greatest woman to become an angel. This family will never be the same.

  5. Terry Conway says:

    My beloved sister will live in my heart forever. I was truly blessed to have her as my sister. No words can express how much I will miss our shenanigans and all the laughter and most of all, the love:gift_heart::gift_heart::gift_heart:
