    Gayla went to be with the Lord about an hour ago, after battling cancer for several years.

    Please be in prayer for her husband, Carl, and her two children, Wesley and Rachel, and the rest of her family.

    Her husband, luckyman, and her brother, baptistteacher, are also members of the BB.

    She posted mostly in the WPF, and all of us ladies have grown to love her. :tear:

    I am heartbroken to hear this, and will continue to pray for her family. Thanks so much, Sue, for letting us know.

    I'm grateful to have known Gayla. We've lost a treasure.

    Dear Lord, Please be with her precious family and comfort them. They are hurting so deeply.

    Gayla's life was a true encouragement.

    Praying that God gives her husband the strength and comfort now and in the years to come. Also praying for her two precious children, that God heals their broken hearts, and brings along another mother like figure in their lives :tear:

    My sister in Christ, and a sister in our joint battle against breast cancer, I will miss her so much. She bolstered me when I was down, she joked with me when I needed a lift, and she prayed for me when I had my mastectomy and chemo.

    My heart and my love goes to her family, and I praise God that she is out of her pain and in Heaven - I am standing on the Promises of Christ my Lord!

    I was very saddened to hear this.

    I will be praying for Gayla's loved ones as they deal with their loss.

    Thanks everyone

    Thanks everyone! I haven't been around the computer much this week, and am just now reading these. Funeral is today (Friday) at 2 pm. The church where many of my family attend, Southwest Baptist in Okla City, has been extremely gracious and helpful during this time, and has been since Gayla arrived back here in July. And not just because we have known Pastor Davison since 1967 when Gayla was 3, I believe that this is just the regular way they are, just like a church family should be.

    Thanks to the ladies who sent flowers, they arrived yesterday. A lovely bouquet of pink roses.

    Well, I need to start getting ready to go. Thanks for all the prayers. Carl thanks you too. He doesn't have internet access at the moment, so I am printing off messages to take to him.

    For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth: (Job 19:25)

    Well, I do have access. (sporadic access:laugh: )
    Yes, My dear wife's body was laid to rest today. I will miss her dearly. My kids surprised me, they wanted to stay to see the pink casket lowered into the ground...I'm sure they'll let things out as time goes on. Pray that God gives me the answers. I picked a poem that fit gayla to a T. It is entitled " God Saw You"

    God saw you tired
    and a cure was not to be
    So he put his arms around you
    and whispered "Come to me"
    With tearful eyes we watched
    you and saw you pass away,
    and though we loved you dearly,
    we could not ask you to stay.
    A golden heart stopped beating,
    hands were put to rest.
    God touched our hearts
    and proved to us,
    He only takes the best.

    I think that fit the whole saga to a T.
    Thank you for your prayers.:godisgood: :thumbs: :type:
