Gayle was one of the first people I met when I moved here and she was always willing to lend a hand to everyone in need. I will miss her kind spirit and love for people and animals. My deepest sympathy to Butch, Jason and her family. I know she is watching over all of you.

We met Gayle shortly after buying our home in Avalon. She not only welcomed us into her home, but also made us feel welcome in our new community. She was truly a giving, caring person and will be greatly missed. Gayle, we will always hold a special place for you in our hearts.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Butch and his family at this very sorrowful time.
