My Mother was a real trooper. There was the camping trip from Cleveland to California in a Volkswagen Camper with Mom, my Dad and us 4 young kids in tow. We are not talking about a 39' Winnebago here right? We got as far as Nevada camping out with the bears and grilling hot dogs and hamburgers and marshmallows along the way and seeing a half dozen National Parks along the way. Mom held up quite, well all things considered, until our Dad got a tad too close to Las Vegas and had to make a pit stop - at the craps table. Well that left us broke so we had to turn around and head home. Lots of fun though as you can imagine, us kids taking turns picking ticks out of my Dad's hair on the trip home. Thank you all so much for coming to my Mother's "home going". May you all live a long and blessed life as my Mother did and take good care of yourselves and each other. God Bless.

Gayle was someone who always lifted our day with a smile and words of encouragement and/or scripture. Our office was blessed with an angel for so many years ...now an angel herself. Memory eternal.

Gayle and I passed each other by at the real estate office. She always had a warm smile and kind words. Thank you Gayle for being a bright star in the world. May you find eternal rest in God's love.

Dear Dave and family ,
I am sending my deepest sympathies. I cannot fully express the sorrow I feel at this time. Gayle warmly touched so many lives and will be missed dearly. She was truly a wonderful lady! I have many found memories of her beginning as a child. And I will miss our talks together. But, I will carry her memory and wisdom with me forever. I hope you find comfort and peace in the love and memories you shared with her. May God bless and keep you safe.
Love always,
Teri (Teresa Moenich)
