Gayle was a kind and Godly Christian sister. Ira and the family have suffered a great loss but for a fleeting time for our time on this earth is exceedingly short. May God's Love and His Angelic Fleet comfort us all a we wait our turn to cross over and be re-united with our earthy and Christian loved ones. Shalom Gayle, Shalom.

This beautiful picture of Gayle reminds me of many years past when we spent so much time together growing up in the same community and attending church at Odom. When she learned to drive she would load all of us into her dad's car and take us down the road to Patrick bridge to swim. My thoughts and prayers are with the family all day today as they say goodbye but also celebrate a life well lived in service to God and her family. God promises us there will be a glad reunion day. Love and condolences to this dear family. Chuck and Judy Myers

I am so sorry to hear about Gayle's passing. I attended the Odom school with her in our early years. Her mother, Jesse and my mother were best friends. It was like she was family. So, may God be with all the family during this time. Glane Harris

I had the pleasure of working with Gayle twice over the lst 33 years. But the biggest pleasure was her friendship. When my own mom passed two years ago, Gayle showed up with a hug and an "I love you". She will never know how much I needed it! Every once in a while, she would show up on our doorstep with a batch of cinnamon rolls or just a smile and a hug. She gave so much to me and all of her friends and loved ones. She will be dearly missed here on earth but I'm betting that Heaven is having a party featuring Gayle's biscuits and gravy, cinnamon rolls and homemade dinner rolls! Love you, Gayle, always and forever.
