Two and a half years ago I resumed studying aikido. I'd been away from the mat for a very long time; I had years to make up for. I thought of Gayle, who visited my dojo in Berkeley from time to time. We had become friends, but after some time, we lost touch. When I looked her up on the Internet, hoping to get in touch and find out how she was doing, I was instead dismayed and deeply saddened to learn of her death, five years after the fact. I know from the messages of those who loved her and studied with her, that the loss of this fine person must still feel raw at times. Gayle had a beautiful and blessed spirit. I admire so much the work she did as a sensei and as a friend to many. Though my condolences come late, they are heartfelt.

Hi Gayle...I lent your MGB to Patrick Bouquet and he says it is basically you that is driving him around in it when he goes to chemotherapy appointments and needs guidance and support. So, just so you know, your presence and love is still felt.

I still think "I'll call Gayle" for guidance and reassurance when things come up in my life. Then I realize she is not with me in the physical sense but she is with me in spirit. I feel her presence. She is still guiding me and reassuring me and I am blessed to have had her in my life. I miss her so much.

Hi Gayle...still missing you with all my heart. We spent Thanksgiving with you up at your place with Carol, smothering the horses with kisses, visiting the koi pond, paying homage to one of the first yurts, looking for the bear in the apple orchard, and picking chantrelles on our walk on the old logging road through the redwoods. All the dogs ran with Bay at top speed with incredible joy, then we went back up to the house and had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal and read a heartfelt poem to you written by a member of the dojo. It was a glorious day and the only thing that would have made it better was having you to talk to and laugh with. So much love...Joy, Caitlin, Jesse, & David
