I knew Gae all my growing up years in Brigham City from first grade until we graduated from high school and lived in the same ward. We all loved to sing together and harmonize, but Gae's voice was of another higher caliber and I always admired her musical talent. I loved all the Peterson family and I send my condolences to her family at this tender time.
