So sad to hear of Gay’s passing. She was always so kind, humble and pleasant, to greet me and say hello when I might be passing through town and happen to see each other. I am thankful for that !

To Alvin, and the Mann, Harris, and Fornarola Families - I am so sorry for your loss of your dear wife, mom, mother-in-law and grandmother. Even though I didn’t know Gay real well, I do know some of her family very well and they must reflect some of her qualities such as Loving life, creation, people, God. Some may say that it’s God’s plan when we die. Here is God’s plan from his own words - Job 14:14,15;John 5:28,29; Psalm 37:29 - a resurrection to the earth - to love life, people,creation, and God forever.
