Gaila will always be remembered for her love of music, which she passed down to her kids and grandkids. "Music will always take you back to a memory". Gaila had a green thumb as well. She could grow anything. She always wanted a farm to be able to have a large garden and a place big enough for all her kids and grandkids to come visit. Gaila also loved to travel. She had visited many places, but the one destination she always wanted to go to was Greece... Now you can go, Mom...

We had so much fun together in our younger years, my kids playing with you kids. She was a beautiful, caring and kind woman. I am glad I got to know her. I just talked to her awhile back, so we did get to reconnect. Sending love and hugs for all of you. She will be missed.
