    I am going to miss my sister Gayle so very much. I went to her home several times a month to spend time with her talking and laying in the bed with her discussing everybody in the family. And we always had great meals that her husband Tim would cook or take us out to eat. I thank God in heaven for moving here 3 years ago so that I got to spend these three years with her. I am blessed for my time with her.

    Gayle was one of the most good heart, loving women I have had opportunity to know!!! She was a biological Grandmother to my daughter, Ashley but also was an “adopted” grandmother to my son, Tyler!!! She was Granny Gayle to BOTH, and NEVER EVER NOT once showed a difference in her love for them!!! I will forever be thankful to her for that!!! She was also good to me and loved everyone unconditionally!!! She was a woman who spoke her mind, but in your heart you knew she was being brutally HONEST and just loving you!! She will be missed by so many as she touched so many lives in a positive and lasting way!!! I know she is seeing the face of Jesus now with no more suffering here on this earth and I will meet her again in the everlasting life!!! 💗💗💗

    My mom was a special person. No one was a stranger. She loved everyone equal except for me ,, cough cough ,, she loved me a pinch more 😊. I’ll sure miss my Moma very much. The only good out of all this is my mom isn’t losing blood , hurting in her back , and last but not least my mom can see again. I know she’s having a blast knowing her health is at normal now And she can see the rain every time her baby boy cries for her. Moma , I thought about you last night as I will in the future nights and I can’t wait to see you again. I’ll miss you arguing and I’ll miss our holidays but most of all I’ll miss our pictures I always made. Your a angel now Moma so go spread your wings and enjoy the life you haven’t had in the last few years and please stay with me until we meet again. I love you Moma 😘

      I wish you all could have met my momma. She was so very good. Yes she was stubborn, yes she was hard-headed and anyone that wanted the truth without sugar coating… Well, they came to her. In her heart, she didn’t want to hurt a soul but she told you the truth, very clear, very blunt! That was one of the many reasons why she was so lovable, simply because she was genuine and she was real. For many years my momma had been sick, horribly sick at times and my momma was tired. She fought every single time and between her and God, she always came back to us. I feel like I am living the most horrific nightmare and I keep trying to wake up. Then when I do, I realize it’s now my reality. There is only ONE good thing that comes from the death of my momma and that she is whole now, she doesn’t hurt, she can walk beside Jesus and her loved ones and not stumble. Her vision has been restored to perfection and now she is free of worry! I’m not sure how I am going to make it without my momma, she was literally the glue that kept our dysfunctional family together. Momma, please watch over us and stay beside us and help guide our paths because we want to make sure that we see you again. Momma, say Hi to daddy for me? I love you momma, with every thing inside of me. Now go rest momma and enjoy the best. We will see you later! 🌹 🥀 ♥️

    Let me start out by saying that you, Gayle, are one of my biggest fans. There wasn’t a time I was in your presence that you did not express how proud of me you were. We always talked about everything and everybody, our conversations had wheels of their own and led to places we never expected and we just rolled with it. Hours would go by without realizing it. You always made me feel special, especially on my birthday. I have my videos of you singing happy birthday to me, that you were not excited about, several different times and within seconds of you singing, you would have me crying-EVERYTIME! (At least I can still hear you sing to me). I am going to miss taking you Christmas shopping every year for everyone in the universe for hours and hours and hours at every store around, looking at every single thing in the store. I am going to miss going out to eat, we always made time to eat because “Tim will just have to pay for it, he’ll be fine”. As everyone knows, you could tell it like it was without a care about who thought what, that is a gene we carry strong. I love you forever, whole bunch.

    To the family-if any of you should need anything, don’t hesitate to reach out.

    Gayle was always so friendly and caring. She would always help you even if you were a stranger. She will always be like a family member to me. I love you, Teresa, Kris, Dana and Phillip. If y’all need anything just a shoulder or to talk I am always available. She will be missed. Please express my condolences to her husband. Darlene
