    Gay and I met at Baptist Hosp. She in nursing/me x-ray. We had some good times - especially our trip to Mexico. So sorry she beat me out of this crazy world. I loved her and parents. I believe we will met again soon

    I first met Gay at the the State Center. She was such a wonderful caring person. She was so proud of her family and it seemed she was always talking about how much fun she had a her most recent family event. She will be missed. Sending prayers to your family

As Gay's co-worker at the Beaumont State Center, I respected her dedication and devotion to the people we served. and cared for.. She supported her fellow workers and was a positive force in our lives. It is an honor to have been her friend.. Your memory will be with us always, Your loving friend and "Baby Boss."

    It saddens us greatly that mom has left this world but it’s confronting to know that Moms in a much better place than here no more pain and sickness free of pain. I firmly believe if you look in the dictionary and look the definition of a Mother you will see My Gramell my Mother and My Wife and Aunt Ju Ju

    Oh, this saddens me greatly! Ms. Gay was such a joy to visit with. She would come in and cheer me and my team on in her quiet, sweet conversation. She is one of the dearest and sweetest persons I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. We will all miss her in a very big way! Becky @ Catherines
