Gayle loved to travel, you could see the enjoyment in her face and how she would light up, taking it all in during her excursions. She was also an avid reader, she loved to listen to country music and, once upon a time, that two-step dancing beat got her feet moving across the floor. Another enjoyment of hers was playing cards; Canasta was the family game, she especially enjoyed winning over the pro - her mother. She had a monthly Canasta club game which would include a good meal with her buddies. She always looked forward to spending time with her family and special friends.
