Please accept my deepest condolences in the loss of Mrs. Gay. I have many beautiful memories of her as a supremely kind and loving individual who always seemed to have a warm greeting, quick laughter, and an uplifting word. As a child it was a joy to observe her as she served in the music ministry at First Virginia Avenue. One of my fondest memories was her determination to study and flawlessly perform an obscure classical piece for my wedding. I just admired her so much. God bless you all during this time, and please know that I am praying for your comfort and strength.
