"To All the Family of Gayle Baldecchi" I am so sorry to hear about Gayle. I found out after the services of her death. She was a Great Great Person whom I have known since her and Joe lived on the Virginia City Road. She was always fun to be around and interesting to talk to. My thoughts are with all of her family.

I'm sorry to hear about your mother. I have many fun and fond memories of your mom in the kitchen teaching us how to make taffi and your dad in the living room. Everytime I drive by the big white house I'm always thinking of the fun times we had as children. It has been many years since I have seen all of you, so please take care.

Terry and Bruce-

What a wonderful woman your mom was! I fondly remember her from my days at Carson Tahoe Foundation. She was a kind, generous, lovely person who I always enjoyed seeing or talking with. Your loss is our entire community's loss. My condolences to you and the family.

To Theresa, Bruce and Joey,
My sympathy goes out to the three of you for the loss of Gale. Joey and I have been the best of friends since we met in first grade, I believe for over 56 years. That is when I first met Gale and she was always friendly and always welcomed me into your home. Gale was a true Lady in all sense of the word. She was polite, had a great sense of humor and treated everyone as though they were a good friend. I don't remember Gale having a frown on her face. I am sure that when Joe and I were growing up we gave her good reason to frown. She always had a glow of warmth and happiness that was catching to the people around her. She took my wife, Sarah, in as a good friend and was very good to our daughters Stacey and Megan. Gale helped celebrate Stacey's graduation from High School by having the whole family up to the Lake House for the day and, believe me, the girls still remember the day with great memories. As we were growing up and when I was at your home, I had the feeling that Gale was interested in what we (kids) were thinking and doing and would always take the time to talk to us. Her values of life were definitely passed down to her children, and I am sure down through more generations. All of us who knew your mother are lucky to have known her and shared in her life. I am grateful to have been touched by her kindness and generosity and will always remember her for the wonderful person she was. We all have lost a great friend, and I am truly saddened by your loss. You all can be proud of the fact that Gale was your mother.
From Joe's lifelong friend… Lee
Our sympathies go to all of the family.
The Smithson's: Lee and Sarah, Stacey, and Megan (Farrar)

Remembering Aunt Do.
Our family always had nicknames for everyone. For me Dorothy Gale Baldecchi was always my “Aunt Do” and one of my favorite Aunts. She was my mother Hazel's youngest sister. My mother raised my Aunt Do after their mother passed away when Aunt Do was 9 years old. My mother was only 29 and recently married. It is especially sad right now to have Aunt Do pass away because ironically I am currently going through my long-deceased parents' and recently-deceased brother Tom Grose's home of 67 years and finding hundreds of family photos of Aunt Do, her Mother and Dad, her sisters and brothers, and some of her friends along with all our other relatives and family photos spanning over 100 years. I think the love of chocolate is a hereditary trait. Aunt Do used to make a double batch of brownies so we kids could have a lot of just plain batter to eat while the “cooked” brownies were baking. She often claimed she could eat a box of chocolates at one sitting. It obviously did her no harm as she lived to an older age than any of her 5 siblings or her parents, and she was always fit and active and slim. Among her many talents, she had a lovely voice and sang beautifully. She could also do an amazing “Tarzan Yell”. In all I can't say enough. She was a lovely woman of many diverse talents. She was kind, gentle and loving to all her family. I always loved visiting Aunt Do and her warm household. Theirs was a special family with her husband, my Uncle Joe, and their children, my special cousins. We always laughed a lot. Those times are some of my fondest memories of my childhood. I will miss you, Aunt Do. Thanks for being such a happy part of my life. Love always, your niece,
