    My Deepest Sympathy Goes out to John and the Family. Gayle was a wonderful Nurse and a caring loving compassionate caregiver while my mother was battling cancer and amazing on how she educated me in Mom’s care. Those general education lessens have served me well in my career in the Healthcare Industry.

    Gayle and I worked together for more than a decade at Greenville as we both had a variety of roles. My fondest memory of Gayle were her many chili recipes ( I am so grateful for the recipe book she gave me!) and working with her to write the chapter in the book Nursing Implications of Diagnostic Tests. She was my inspiration when it came to public speaking and a wonderful support during trying times. She was a wealth of information during her time at the Cancer Care Center and helped as several of my family members battled with cancers. She will be very much missed. John, my sincere condolences, she was a wonderful, gracious and fun individual.

    I met Gayle when I asked her to speak to my classes at RHS for the Raider program. She was so kind and came in and spoke! She did such a terrific job and said she was willing to come back and share her knowledge! What a wonderful and generous person! I’m so sorry for your loss.
