I was so saddened to read of Gayle's passing, She was not only a dedicated nurse but quite the volunteer at Motor City Mitten Mission. She even met me at the Roseville-Eastpointe Recreation Center to drive over to the Mission's office! AND at the end of the day would drive me back! This was much appreciated. I am sure Jan and her are up in heaven discussing the method to make the perfect sandwich! Rest in peace!

I will always remember Gayle as a very compassionate and dedicated woman.

I will always remember how Gayle loved deeply and how helpful she was -- she was always willing to share a tidbit of advice or a shared experience. I will miss my friend. My prayers are for God to comfort and draw all her family closer and closer to His throne.
