    There will always be a special place in my heart for you Susan. I can’t help the tears that flood my eyes when I think about not be able to talk to you for hours on in, just like we did a couple of weeks ago. “Thank you for being a friend”
    Until we meet again.

    Gaynell was my aunt Barbara (Orman)’s best friend growing up. She was always like family to us…she was family to us all. She was right there for my aunt during her last days and I will forever be grateful for that. We’ve definitely lost another beautiful soul here on Earth but I know she is rejoicing in Heaven now with the Lord. Prayers for Danielle and Jacob

    I worked with Gaynell in the late 70s. She was so much fun. Always laughing and smiling. She left her mark on this world and will never be forgotten. Love and prayers for all that loved her.
