Ben and Family,Please accept my sincere condolences. Gayle was a good friend, a Phi Mu Sister, a wonderful example, and one who I remember brought much laughter and love everywhere she went. Gayle and Ben were responsible for getting Jerry and me on our first date, so thank you for your effort, and for my two children that came from that! Gayle will be so missed. Love, Leah

Marie-France and my lives were enriched by Gayle's friendship. She was a true lady, generous, supportive, a wonderful and gracious host and a great listener. We met her and Ben in Mexico where they were doing a great and understated job of representing the USA. Anyone who came into contact with them walked away feeling good about them, themselves and what they stood for. Her memory will remain with us always.
