Gayle H. Bruning
August 27, 2019
When I turned 50, I came into work and saw a bunch of number 50th's going around my cubicle. Come to find out, Gayle decorated my cubicle. Those numbers stayed on my cubicle for 2 years. Everyone asked, what was that about and I told them Gayle did this, this is how old I am, no one believed it. How precious is that. I had the priviledge of visting Gayle on 8/6/19. I was very happy that she welcomed my visit. I sat with her for about 1/2 hour. I bought her some Entenmann's chocolate on chocolate donuts. She didn't have any then but offered me some. We were watching the news in silence and Rich was making her dinner. It smelled so good, I wanted to stay. She said he was making hamburger. It smelled like steak to me, ha! ha! She still hadn't sampled her donuts and I said "Gayle, are you going to eat those donuts?" She said "yes I will." I said "Ok, I'm going to leave now." I will remember her kindness and genorosity always.
