Craig, I would like to offer you my condolences on the death of your mother. When we both worked at Wells Fargo Operations Center, you had told me a bit about your mother and it was obvious she was a wonderful mother and loved very much. I remember the hole created in my heart by the loss of my own mother. I have lost track of you, but, hope you are doing well. Kriss

I truly loved Gayle. She was that kind of friend that, if you are lucky, you will get once in a lifetime. She cared about other people, those she knew well or those she just met. She had the wonderful ability to remember names from the first introduction, which made everyone she knew feel important. When we worked together at Buttrey's/Albertson's she knew everyone, by name, from the store manager to the carry-out people. Amazing! We remained friends throughout the years, raising our children and living our everyday life. We would meet often for breakfast or lunch and visit for hours on end. She would always ask for an update on me and everyone of my kids. We were the kind of friends that even though months would go by between visits, when we got together, it was like we had coffee yesterday. I will miss you, Gayle, my forever friend. Love you forever, Char
