Earl, Linda, Kenny, Vicky and Family:

I feel for your loss. Gayle was a wonderful, fun-loving personality I feel honored to have known. I truly know how your hearts are heavy, as I have lost my 3 anchors in the past few years. But love and time will calm the burden, the sun will shine again on your lives and have faith you will never be alone.
