Please share a memory of Gayla to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Gayla enjoyed life to the fullest and happily gave more than she received. Unique, vibrant, and tough as nails, she will always be in the hearts of her two surviving children, five grandchildren, three great grandchildren, her devoted husband, and a myriad of friends and family, who all loved her.
