Please accept our deepest condolences. Gaylene made a number of beautiful cakes to celebrate my daughter’s and husband’s birthdays. I can see the penguins or chickens doing all the various antics on the cake much to the amusement of those celebrating with us. We hope your special memories will help you through this difficult time.

Deepest condolences to you and the family. I will always keep close her on the sidelines of the soccer field hanging out with me especially cheering my girls when playing against Sadie. She will be deeply missed by all.
