Gayle was such a joy to care for, and I am beyond grateful to have had that opportunity. Gayle liked her word puzzles and watching the birds outside of her window. She used to go for walks, and I loved when I got to be the one to take her, because occasionally when we would stop to rest, she would rest her head on my shoulder for a minute, and it was a simple, yet comforting gesture. I liked helping her decorate her room for the changing holidays once Covid hit, as Jane couldn't come in any longer to help. Gayle and I named her black cat decoration midnight. I loved her smile because sometimes you had to work for it, HA! But it was beautiful! I could go on, but will leave it at that. Gayle, you are already so missed, and your absence at Briarwood is felt by all of us.
Gayle was a highly professional secretary for the Office of the VA Chiefs of Staff. She was a very organized person, incredibly efficient and a challenge to keep busy. She could type faster than I could dictate. And every assignment was immediately accomplished in a flawless manner. She corrected all my grammatical errors and made me look better than I deserved.
