I am sorry for the loss of your dear loved one. When we lose someone it is a very sad time because death is unnatural and it was not Jehovah God's purpose for us to die so our loving creator has given us the hope of seeing them again.The Bible teaches at  Acts 24:14  that our loved ones will have life again by means of the resurrection hope. There is more information about this hope at www.jw.org

Not sure if we've never met, but I well remember Gayla.  We knew each other as cousins. Years of cousin-pictures taken on the steps at Thanksgiving time.  Thinking of all of you in this sad time.  She is at peace.
Love to everyone.

So sorry for your loss.  I remember Gayla as always smiling.  She was so sweet and kind.  I will pray for you and your son to get through this time.

I'll always remember her smile and kindness. She was a classmate and we sat next to each other in band.

Thoughts and prayers to Dennis and family.

Dear Dennis and Matt and Family,

We're so sorry to hear about Gayla. One of our best memories was when we stopped by with our Z3 convertible on a cool evening.  We were going for rides, and all of a sudden Gayla started yelling "I smell chicken!"  Turns out her heated seat was set on high.  We still use that expression to this day.  We will truly miss our Great friend.

With all our Love and Prayers,
Brent & Tanya

I'm so lucky to have had the greatest mother in law one could ask for.  She was such a blessing. I'm thankful she was able to see us married as that was what she was looking forward to. I'm here thru thick and thin. I love you Dennis and Matt I'm here what ever your needs. Your loving daughter in law and wife.
