Knew Gayle thru Seltech. It was always a pleasure to visit with her on the phone. Gayle was always pleasant and in good spirits. I was in shock when I learned of her passing. God Bless.

I debated whether to share this picture as it was recently found on Gayle‘s cellphone. It is a gift beyond measure and one I think she would have preferred we all have so that we never forget their true natures. Gayle, we should have hung on to each other in our laughter and love and never let go. But we’ll carry on our playful shenanigans when we meet again

My dear sweet Gayle my heart is broken. I truly regret losing touch over the years. I have so many fond memories of you and me and our moms. You were an absolute bright light in my life and I was blessed to know and love you. Even in tough times, you could always make me smile. I will never forget how you were always there for me. We had so many good times and laughs. I can only pray that you are at peace. I hope you are with your mom and your precious son. Until we meet again "sissy".

Such a gentle salt of the earth lady and dear friend. I work at the other end of the building Gayle worked at, and I always looked forward to see her. Some days I'd go down and talk to her, & I'd walk in her door, and she'd say "Good morning sunshine!", and she meant it.

I will also always remember her, for the fact that she got to meet my son maybe once or twice when he was in the 7th grade. One day during our weekly talks I told her my son having a track meet in a couple of days, in the evening, at the track across from our office. Well, at the track meet I look in the stands and see Gayle (& coworker John) sitting in the stands. I went to talk to them, and she was soooo excited, as she had not been to track meet like that before, and she was pumped up and ready to cheer my son on. She did too. I will NEVER forget her for taking her time to come sit on those hard bleachers for like 2 hours and patiently waiting just to cheer by son on. So touching then, and moreso now. Great memories I will never forget.

She would also always accept my packages or mail from delivery drivers and hold them at her desk, when I was away from my office, and she'd call me on my cell phone (or text) to let me know she had my package. She was awesome to do that so I wouldn't have to wait for re-delivery on another day, ya know.

I am the Director of a 501c3 non-profit called the Arkansas Senior Olympics, and we promote healthy lifestyles for adult men and women. We do many sports events, & Gayle would always ask me how things were going, who did what, and I'd share stories with her. Recently she started walking (past my office and down the sidewalk) during her lunch break. I'd say "Gold medal Gayle" & she'd smile!!!!!

She was just simply an inspirational, kind and special lady, that I, and my family will MISS DEARLY!

Bless your family. My prayers are will you all. Spread love daily... like Gayle!!!!!!!

Everybody loved Gayle. And for good reason. She had a special twinkle in her eye and just took you in with her warmth and tenderness. Anybody who liked to explore the countryside with her mother in a small trailer is at the top of the list in my book. What a wonderful way to share time together! I just met Gayle's grandson for the first time. I can see so much of her in him. He's a lucky boy. Be at peace, Gayle.

Gayle. Oh, Gayle. My heart is ripped out. We met through Jeff with whom I’d met ages ago, so you were a more recent addition to my life. And now you’re gone. No. We giggled together so often and made such plans for future deviltry at an age when we were supposed to be slowing down. Ha! Not you! Not us, sisters of the heart where you will live forever, And I will love you forever, Gayle, My Gayle.

Gayle and I worked together for a little less than 2 years. She was one of my absolute favorite people who was always ready to have personal conversations and banter. When I saw Gayle's number pop up on my phone I immediately got excited and she always made my day, even when things were not going her way.

Gayle had an infectious attitude. Her sass, her energy, and her laughter were all contagious. I remember when I left the job where I regularly assisted Gayle. Instead of being sad I was leaving she was excited for me. Before I could even ask if we could keep in contact she gave me her number and continued to check on me and my pets like we were her own.

Gayle was a beautiful person and I regret every day I didn't send her a text to check in.

To her anyone that knew her I'm so sorry you have lost her, to any who didn't know her I'm sorry you never got to meet her. We all have a wonderful guardian angel now. I'll miss you forever.

My heart and prayer goes out to her family.
Gayle had the most loving heart. She was an angel.

We enjoyed teasing on each other, and sending pictures back and forth, of our favorite football teams. Kind of a rivalry ;)
