My condolences to Travis and the family.
Gaye was a great friend of mine and certainly one of a kind, you couldn’t help but laugh when you’re talking to her.
She endured a lot of hardship during her life but she kept plugging along and no matter how she was treated she never had anything bad to say about anyone.
I loved her laugh and her made up words!!
Anyhouzers!!! Rest In Peace my Dear Friend 🙏🏻 💐 🌹
