I was very sorry to hear about Gale's passing. Growing up in Hogansville, Gale was my best friend. He gave me my first guitar lesson. That was 60 years ago and I still remember it, and I still play. I spent a lot of time at the Swann house in LaGrange. The whole family could play an instrument or sing and we had some wonderful times. Gale had a 1956 Crown Victoria that was super nice. He'd let me drive it and I didn't even have a license. He was a little guy but had a great big heart. He'd give you anything he had. Whenever I'd go on a date, I'd tell Gale and he'd ask, "Did you tell her about me?" "No, Gale," I'd say, "I told her about me." He'd laugh like crazy. Pastor Rev. Dr. Lamar Truitt

I loved this little guy for about seventy years and had more fun with him than anyone. I went to Dunson School, worked in the Mill with him at Dunson, and was friends with him on the village. My prayers are with his family and friends.
