    My deepest sympathy to Gayle’s family. My brother (Chuck Marks) and I enjoyed brief visits with Gayle when we visited our sister (Susan Marks)at the nursing home in Nags Head. I wish to share with the family a quote from a headstone in Ireland: Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. I am lifting you up in prayer.

Please share your thoughts ...
