Mr. & Mrs. Gibson will forever be in my heart and memory. As a child, a lot of time was spent at the Gibson house as they were great friends of my parents (the Dawson's). After seeing me admire a beautiful 9-tier wedding cake at a bridal show, she lovingly displayed her baking skills, Mrs. Gibson gifted me a beautiful and tasty replica of that cake over 37 years ago.
It warmed my heart to see and speak with her most recently at Sharon's service.
My prayers and sincere condolences to the family, she was a true gem, a strong, kind and loving woman.
May God Bless the Gibson Family!
