    Byron, I am truly sorry about the loss of your Mom. I can’t imagine the pain you have gone through over these past few weeks.
    Gayle was quite entertaining to be around and to talk with. I know somehow she is back along side of your Dad.
    May she rest in peace.

    Byron, I don’t know where to begin. Losing one parent is bad enough but both in such a short period of time has to rip your heart out. I too will miss Gail. While she was not a there to experience first hand Butch’s and my ordeals with sand gnats while stuck on a sand bar at dusk or waking up shivering to 20° weather on Baldhead, she always got a hardy laugh at our self inflicted dilemmas . Yes, I miss her smile, her laugh and giving spirit.
