Oh, my beautiful Aunt Gae...where to even start. I remember as a child all of your nieces including me wanting to be just like you! I would beam with pride (and still do) when someone told me that I looked like you. You were gorgeous and always fun! I was especially proud to be you and Memaw’s namesake! You were like a second mother to all of us nieces and nephews. I have so many wonderful memories of you. It’s hard to even imagine a life without you in it, I will never forget your voice and mannerisms. I’m pretty sure I will always be waiting for you to bust through the door with that waddle. I will always think of you when playing Baulderdash! I am thankful that you are with Poo-paw, Meme, Heidi, Nanie and Papa and that this is our temporary home and the amount of time on earth is nothing compared to the time we will have together in eternity. Losing you has taught me so much already, I will never take another family member for granted and will always remember what is important in life. I will dance as if no one is watching, Love as if I’ve never been hurt, sing as if no one is listening and live as if it’s heaven on earth. I love you more than you will ever know.

My sweet Gae. I have searched my heart the last couple of days looking for how I could put into words how you impacted me and how to describe who you were to me. You were tough,strong. I met you first as a small child. You always had a look of determination on that sweet little face. You had to be tough with two older brothers! But you had Amye and she always had your back! Then you came back into my life as a young woman, pregnant with your first child. That precious little boy, Lariat Dale Allan Gartman. You were so proud of him and a wonderful mother. Then along came Lane Susann and your world was complete. Or so you thought. Times and situations changed and you entered a new marriage with a new beginning. With this new beginning came Houston and Brooke. And grandbabies! Oh how you loved your children and grandchildren. And all your family. I remember way back when Lariat was just a baby and you came over one day. As tiny as you were you walked up to my door with a baby on each hip. Not just your son but Amyes' Kameron! I loved our visits. And I loved you. Years changed many things for both of us. When I lost my son, you always had the words to pick me up and help me through. I guess LOVE would be the word to describe you. Love for your children, grandchildren, mother, sister, brothers and all those nieces and nephew you spoke about all the time. I pray your love will continue to be felt in the heart of each person you touched in your too short life. To your children, just know there is no one who can ever love you more than your mother and nothing she wouldn't have done for you. My love to you all.

Let’s see. My Aunt Gae. My other mom. The woman who gave her life to everyone except herself. She cared about everyone in this world so much. She accepted everyone no matter what. I will strive to be just like my Aunt Gae for the rest of my life. So selfless. And so caring. I hope one day I can be at least close to being just like this woman. I can’t say one bad thing about her. She was the definition of percect. when she stayed with me I would wake up to her music still playing under the pillow while she was sleeping. Her music taste will live on with me. Because she had the best!! Rock on Aunt Gae. You are and always will be a rock star!

Gae and I rode to the TDC academy together. She was a little Darlin. In the morning she drive at a normal speed but in the afternoon we we went through South range road. Well I don't know if if any of you have drove that road at 90 miles an hour!! I would just hang on .She said she had to get home to Lariot. I used to call her a little Bany Rooster. My heard is broken she will always have a place in my heart. Bu we must remember this is not goodbye but I'll see ya later. Just remember her laughter and that this is not the final chapter. 💕💕

Oh my sweet Gae Gae, My heart is broken but I have been lucky and honored to have had you for your lifetime. There are WAY to many stories to tell, but I know an integral part of the Olgesby Family has lost a vital part. You are our Angel now with some big ole wings darling and I know Meme is there with you, with many others. You know that Beth and I have your six, always. Fly high and finally be free my 1st "baby girl", Until we meet again May God hold you in the palm of his hand...

I cannot believe you have left us, my beautiful little friend. Oh, how I will miss you. You were so full of life and so funny.
I laughed the night you called me and told me you pulled up everything growing in the flower bed in front of the dorm. “I’ll fix ‘em!” you said! You were so proud of yourself! You were a devoted mother and wife. You loved your family so much.
Your love of animals, big and small, even surpassed mine. You practiced being an angel on earth. Now you have earned your heavenly wings. Rest well, my little friend. I miss you. Till we meet again.......Love you.

I am so sorry for your loss, Gay and I worked and Mt. View together and then at Woodman and she was such a sweet person. I remember visiting her at the hospital when she had her son. She was a great person always spoke to you. She was a good friend. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

Mrs. Tucker was a former co-worker of mine at Mountain View Unit, and she was one of my most favorite people there because she could always bring a smile. I was OJTing and she was a re-hire when I first met her, what I remember best from that first day meeting her is her perfume! She always filled a room with her Shalimar, and I mean that in the best way. She was a sweet, funny lady and I will miss her a lot. My love and condolences to her family and loved ones.
