Gale was an amazing friend. She was there for everyone. Never judged a book by the cover and loved and helped all. I love you Gale until we meet again…
I am truly sad to hear that Gale passed away. I am praying for your entire family. May the good Lord hold you all in your time of need.
Gale was more than a care giver. She was a friend, a counselor, a good cook, a person with a good heart. Gale, you will be missed by many.
Gale worked at Belle Manor which turned into Flash Estates and also worked at Flare House. She made a difference in the lives of residents, friends, family, and her Co workers.
So sorry to hear of Gale’s passing, she was a very sweet person. Glad I got to talk to her a couple of years ago. She was a good friend in high school. Condolences to the entire family.
Gale and I go back decades, working together at Belle Manor and now Flare House. I recollect the wonderful times we had taking our residents on vacation, parades, etc… together! We truly had an amazing genuine working relationship bond! I will miss our deep sincere talking story and laughs, sharing our passion and love for friends, residents and family! I’m deeply saddened we didn’t have one more convo for the good ole sake! 🙂 Rest In Peace, say Hi to Eddy for me! 🙂

Cousin it has been years since we have seen each other but we have stayed connected on FB. On hearing of your passing, I am beyond speechless. I decided to post to your FB account and while there I began to read the many posts from those whose lives you have truly impacted. Wow, the people you have loved and have loved you are remarkable. I had no doubt that you were an amazing woman, but I just had no idea of the immensity. I am sorry that is has taken your death to understand the woman you had become and the many, many lives you have filled with unconditional love. Your selfless acts of kindness are apparent in the post from your children and those who thought of you as their mother, friend, confidant and in some cases savior. You will be truly missed and in your final resting place, know you gave the most important gift there is in life “LOVE”. Rest well amazing woman!!!
Jim & Michelle I am so sorry to hear about Gale my thoughts and prayers go to you and her family. Gale was always a great friend and will be missed dearly. I will always remember the days as neighbors,. Heaven gained another angel.
