May God bless you all during this difficult time. I have fond memories of our Oak Park Church days, and how Miss Gyneth would allow me to come over some Sunday afternoons for lunch and to play board games & visit with Debbie. She was a loving beautiful soul, and I am very sorry for your loss.

I am very sad to hear of your passing Aunt Gyneth. You certainly will be missed by a lot of family and friends. But you are now with your lord and savior Jesus Christ. You are also up there with a lot of family members who preceded you. What a glorious celebration that will be. Although we have not shared much of my adult life together, I still have many fond memories of you and Uncle TG when I was young. I appreciate all the things y'all did in helping to raise me. I will not forget you. RIP my sweet Aunt.
