"Too many good memories to put down but mostly we had so much fun on the boat we owned together. We spent hours hanging out in Hanky Pank bayou, soaking up the sun and laughing. Miss those days with my friend. So sorry girls for the loss of you mom and grandma that loved you with everything she had. Love Judy "

"I didn't know Gayle until I was 45 when I came into the family via marriage to her daughter Kelli. She was always a great person to be around with her quick wit and love of life. She will be greatly missed by anyone that knew her."
