Dear Lee,

I was so sad to hear about Gayle's passsing. I wish I would have known. She and Marshall were so much alike, big hearts and loving. It was nice talking to her every now and then,keeping in touch with the boys. I'm glad she was a part of my life and I am going to miss her knowing she is gone. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and please let Tracie know i will be thinking of her.

I was so sad to hear of Gaile's passing and remember back to the times I was at the Gentry's home hanging out with her brother Marshall. I remember Gaile and Diana bring the typical little sisters and bugging us the entire time we were there. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family in this very difficult time.

Diana, Lee and Tracy,
Growing up with Gaile as a friend was a joy in my life. we had so much fun playing games with the other kids on the street. Our night games of ditch and army. The summers of playing rubber ball in the circle, rolling skating up and down the sidewalk, teaching her how to ride a two wheeler, going to the creek or just sitting in the front yard making a chain out of clovers. We always found something to do. When Taile and I would talk on the phone we would always talk about the good times we had growing up. How children now days don't seem to have the fun we did. I will greatly miss talking with Gaile and remenacing about the old days.

My memories of Gaile go way back to being co-workers at Butler Co. Child Welfare Services. We were a part of the "infamous bullpen." She had this sense of humor, a way of "rolling her eyes when annoyed." I had much respect for her. Even tho I haven't had contact with Gaile for many years, learning of her passing saddened me deeply. My prayers go out to Gaile's family and loved ones.

It seems like yesterday we were driving around Hamilton in Gaile's old car, where the door popped open when we turned the corner. She was always laughing and enjoying life. As one of my best friends in life, I will miss you more than words can say. God Bless
