Dana, Jericho, and Teresa, I just heard about your mom and am so sorry for your loss. Gay was a wonderful mom, daughter, sister, aunt, grandmother and friend to so many. I will never forget the years we hung out and all the wonderful memories. She was truly one of a kind and will never be forgotten.

May God give you all strength during this difficult time and know that I love you all very much.

To my beautiful nieces and the rest of my family. The loss of my beloved sister, is almost too devastating. But I know she's with the Lord and her mother. That she's pain-free, and no more worries for her. With great love

We were so shocked to hear this. We'd known Gay it seems like all of our lives (or at least since 21st & Lewis). Our thoughts and prayers go out to each of her family members.
