I helped Gayle take care of her Mom after Mrs Strickland had her stroke. Gayle was a wonderful friend and I loved her and her family do much. She will be truly missed.

I was never close to my aunt but I did love the woman and to find out that she is no longer in this world is very upsetting and sad. The thing I remember about her the most is the love she had for my memow and how much then beloved to get out and go shopping whenever my aunt made it to panama city. She was a wonderful loving and hard working lady. I will miss you very much Aunt Gayle but I know that now you and memow can shop forever together.
