    My heartfelt condolences to this precious family, Dustin, Mr & Mrs Brown, Anedra, Wyndell & Phyllis, and extended family.

    Gayla was a wonderful dear friend to me! My heart is broken over hearing the news of Gayla’s passing thi weekend. I met Gayla when she came to work at Educators Resource. She and I had a special friendship. I knew God had brought her my way at Educators and I always told her so. Gayla’s laugh, easy going personality, her pure sweetness and heartfelt love for our Lord and Savior kept us both going every day! Her love for Dustin was OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! She adored you Dustin and nothing came between you and her! Gayla spoke mostly of Dusin, but I heard much of Anedra, her mom and dad, and as she said, “her handsome brother Wyndell and his very beautiful wife, her sister in law Phyllis”. She was so proud of you all! We use to talk about family, a lot! My heart is heavy with sadness today, but also smiles as I think of my dear friend Gayla. I consider myself very blessed to have befriended Gayla years back! Her friendship brought me through a lot! I will miss her until we meet again on that grand REUNION DAY! To the precious Brown family, be comforted and remember the wonderful days with Gayla as I will alway cherist and continue her memory forever! I honor my dear friend Gayla today and will always speak highly and carry on her life she lived here on this earth.

    Sweet Gayla, until we meet again on that great reunion day!…
    I Cor 15:55 – Where O dealth is your victory? Where O death is your sting? “Gayla’s in heaven with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!”

    Much love and prayers,
