Gaye was a very dear friend of mine in high school. I lost track of Gaye and Wayne and didn't learn of her death until this web site was established. This reunion, in my opinion, should be dedicated to our wonderful classmates who are no longer with us. We've lost way too many. I wish Gaye could be in Bryan for the festivities--she would have loved it.
