I was just sitting in the yard and looking at the sun windchim I have. Gayle came to my mind and I looked up and said I wonder. I found this lovely blessing of our Grandma Gayle as my boys always called her. She helped me get a home down from hers I had a new born (28) now. We would go down to Gayles house a few times a week. Getting out the popcorn and falling asleep. I soon became pregnant again. Gayle had my shower at my house. While I was having labor pains and had girls throwing gifts at me. We had to leave and Gayle was by my side when my new son had no father there. Ill always remember her saying. Geri he has dimples. Hes now 27. She was always there in my hard times and wonderful times. Never judging. Always a stern what am I going to do with you? Followed by a big hug. Her flashy but so classy dress fit her fun loud loving personality. I had to laugh when I thought my X Ron Wahlin passed in Nov. what a meeting that was. The last time I saw you was on your 80th party. Also the last time I saw Carolyn. Who also was an amazing caring woman. I will miss you, Grandma Gayle. You will always be my mom to me. Geri Rowland

I first met Gayle 27 years ago at a family gathering in Los Altos, California. She was a blaze of red hair, red leather and red cowboy boots accented with gleaming stars and moons jewelry. It did not take long to recognize that she shone just as brilliantly from the inside out. Tonight, a clear Colorado sky is full of bright stars and the merest crescent of a new moon hanging low in the evening sky. It made me smile to think of Gayle taking her place there.

Que in paz descanse, Gayle.

To all the Barnett family, friends and associates. Our hearts are deeply saddened. What a grand and unique lady. She will be forever missed and thought of often. She became our gma through marriage but stayed in our hearts for life. Thank you for teaching me how to eat dessert first. And that it's ok to eat a bag of popcorn for dinner. How much fun you can have staying up past midnight to make Christmas cookies and candies for all. And oh the card games we played, always with the twinkle in your eye when you beat someone! Thank you for being my mentor, confidant, Al-Anon and most especially my friend and grandma. We all love you so very much! Kisses and hugs to all in the happy hunting grounds.

I will miss my friend Gail, and for her support, I will allways be grateful. She and her daughter Carolyn shared their unconditional love and taught me how to laugh at life. Now they can be together at the card table in the sky and will always live on in my memory.

This is so hard because there's so much to say about
my Cousin Gayle.
She was so loved by her family. I will always remember our Family Reunions & Gayle's hugs.
She made everyone feel so good & was so much fun to be
around.
I've got so many wonderful memories that I can't write them
all. Gayle, You may have left this world! However, You have
left behind memories we all have & will always cherish.

Pam, Kurt, Kent, Tina, Mitch, Shannon and all the family. I am so sorry to hear of Grandma Gayle leaving us. She had such unconditional love for everyone. My two children adopted her as their Grandma immediately. I can still see my son Jason, as a 16 year old, running into her at Safeway and he gave her a big hug and picked her up. She just laughed her beautiful laugh.
I know she is with Barney and Carolyn, smiling down on us all.
I will miss her and there is a part of my soul missing.
