    It was never about Gayle. It was always about the person standing before her. It was always about how good her LORD was and how great life is. It was about how special her family was to her. Ben, Kaye and I are so thankful that we were a small part of Gayle’s journey….It added volumes of joy to our lives.
    Sending our love while thinking and praying for you and your family.
