  1. The Gaynor Family Although I couldn’t be their you are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time. I know how special your father was to you. You will always have the memories to remind you of that. May those memories help you through this time. Shirley Herrin

  2. I had the pleasure of knowing “Brother G” for almost 20 years and although we first met through work, I was also blessed to have him as my friend. I was so very sad to hear that he’s made his transition. Gaynor was such a wonderful man and I had the greatest respect for his generous nature and kind spirit. I have many beautiful memories of sharing his remarkable sense of humor and he will be truly missed. My respect and sympathies to his family and my thoughts and prayers are with you all as well.
