Although I have not had the pleasure of seeing or talking to you recently I hoped you knew that I have always held you and your Mother deep in my heart. Gaylord, you and your family watched me grow up during the 70’s, are moms were the best of friends back then. We had a large extended family back then, one you could AWAYS count on! I can remember Dana, Russell, Greg (I think that was his name) and you running around Bryant Manor just becoming the future of Seattle. I loved to watch and listen to you play the piano I was so little back then but I remember it just like yesterday. I watched while all of you help shape OEC. But Gaylord you and I always have had a big brother, little sister bond because our mothers were so close. All of our lives have followed different paths during the years and I know that there have been many struggles for all of you and your families but I have always loved and respected your family. I wish I would have been able to get to know your wife and children but our paths did not cross much. But you would keep in touch every now with Momma K ay and let here know your accomplishments and your struggles. Gaylord you will truly be missed! Please know that you are deeply imbedded in your little sister’s heart and please give Ms. Elizabeth Caldwell a big kiss and hug from Reina you know she was my favorite person in this whole wide world. I will be listening for those keys when it is my turn to show me the way! Love always Reina
