Gay Groff Gillespie, My Dear Old Friend, Has Passed



This morning, Gay passed away into that dimension we are all destined to one day. My heart is heavy, for she was a very dear friend in grade school, and we continued to be friends throughout our lives.

Pictured above is Gay at one of our annual Christmas luncheons with many of our mutual chums. Pictured below is sweet, Gay at my house one recent Christmas.

I'm sorry I have no pictures of her when she was a gorgeous model for both Jantzen and White Stag. Of course, she remained gorgeous for the duration. She was a mere 63.

My heart goes out to her dear husband, their two sons and of course the rest of their extended families.

Here's to you, dear one, cheers!

Love,

"Chris"

Zwee dear ~
63...too soon...too much yet to be
experienced. Larkrise is so right;
our early and lasting Friends can
finish our sentences, remind us of
incidents and help us to remember
dates and times we lived through
but cannot recall on the spur of
the moment....they are our history.
Beautiful Gay will be waiting and
what a reunion that will be...
Prayers with you and her Family.
Blessings ~
Mary
