Nanna Gayl, words can’t describe how much I am going to miss you. I love you so much. Forever in my heart, will cherish our memories each and everyday! ❤️February 24, 2022
To all of Gayl’s family, I would like to offer my sympathies on her death. She was a great colleague during our years together at Gandarra. Fun-loving is is a very fitting description of Gayl! And of living life to the full. Many happy memories, including of Gayl going off on the back of a Harley around the streets of Sydney, whilst we were at a conference there. I also have memories of her many endearing sayings and mannerisms. She clearly had a deep love for you all. I’m sorry I was unable to attend her funeral to show my respect. With sincere sympathy, Mary WadeFebruary 8, 2022
