Gayle was one of my favorite people in the world. He could always make me laugh. I met him through Vickie and spent many fun times with them, from playing cards and board games and bowling (saw Gayle almost bowl a 300 one night) with trips to St. Kitts and Washington, D.C. where he fell asleep during a play at Ford's Theatre. Gayle was great at telling funny stories; one of my favorites was when he was stationed in California, went swimming in the Pacific, got pulled under and swept out, then came up not facing the shoreline and he said he panicked because he thought he had been swept out into the middle of the ocean, then finally turned around and could see the shore.
I am so glad Vickie and Gayle found each other because they had many wonderful years together traveling the country. I love them both and am so sad that my dear friend Gayle is gone. Vickie, you were such a good wife, helping him when his health deteriorated. I love you both so very much, Jill
