We Thought of You With Love Today We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. We think of you in silence, we often speak your name; All we have now are memories, and your picture in a frame. Your memory is our keepsake, with which we will never part; God has you in his keep, we have you in our heart. It broke our heart to lose you. But you didn't go alone, For a part of us went with you... the day God took you home. ~Author Unknown~ Thinking of you Paul and the entire Hagen family during this sad time. Aunt Gayle will forever be remembered, and we'll keep our fond memories of her and her sweet spirit close to our hearts today, and always. Love you!! Love, Alyssa, Mike, Caitlin, Maddie and Angel McKenna Varen

Paul...words obviously can never express all of our sorrow right now. Gayle will be missed so very much. Where there was Gayle, there was laughter and fun and usually something really tasty she had made. Our prayers are with you for now and the days ahead.

To the Hagen and Beauchamp Families My deepest sympathy goes out to each of you during this sad time as you lay Gayle to eternal rest. I have many fond memories of our years together and will never forget the special person that she was. May each of you be comforted by the many friends and family surrounding you now both physically and in spirit. Gayle was a beautiful person and touched many lives during her time with us. May her memory and the unforgettable sound of her laughter bring you pleasant thoughts in the days ahead. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
