I am sorry to hear of your lost. I remember Gaylord and his wife, from my days at the Longbranch sitting next to the dart boards, having a laugh with him and his family. He had a quick wit and a warm smile, and he could always make me laugh.

Dear Stephanie & Mike, Joey and family;

We were so sorry to hear of your loss. While we did not know Gaylord, Stephanie and Mike are dear friends and we want to let you all know that our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. It has been a difficult year for your family with the recent death of Stephanie's and Gaylord's mother. Gaylord was much too young to leave this world. May God bless him and all of you.
