Dear Lori and Ann Marie so very sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved Mom. She was a grand lady and I have many fond memories of her when we went on our trip to Graceland. Gayle was such a huge part of all your lives and it will be difficult for all of you and a very hard journey but hold onto all the wonderful memories you have of her. This will help.

Condolence from Bev Dayman on October 18th, 2014 4:34 PM

Lori, Anne Marie, Dena and the entire Hickson family,
My sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom, Grandma, Daughter, Sister and Aunt.
Gayle and Clancy are in many of my childhood memories. But my most memorable memory of Gayle was when one of my kids fell asleep on the bus and didn’t get off. Dale didn’t realize I only had 2 of 3 kids and did not see me running after the bus in a state of panic pushing the baby in the stroller. I ran all the way home and the first person I called was Gayle at the bus barn. She stayed with me on the phone and tried to calm me down while she radio Dale on the bus to see if he could check for Leah in the seats. I could hear the entire radio conversation, however Gayle made me stop climbing the walls in a state of panic when she re-assured me that Dale had her safe in the seat sleeping and would swing by and drop her off. I couldn’t thank her enough. Not too long ago we ran into her at the Dr office, and after I reminded her of who I was we shared a laugh and a wonderful conversation. I will always remember that memory and Gayle’s laugh. Please accept my sincere condolences and find peace in the memories you have of your mom. Thinking of you all. Bev Dayman (Dauncey)
