Gayle Cbp Woodul: 07/02/1955 - 09/06/2018
9th June 2018 - Gayle was planning a party, but it seems that Life had other plans,
and Gayle moved up to a higher place today...
but methinks there will still be one helluva celebration on June 24th -
Our hearts go out to Christian - now is the time to support him with all our love
There were some inspirational words seen at Dieppe 2016 - they seem perfect here...
Celebration of Life (Gayle's words, published 21/05/2018)
I'm planning to have a "Pool Party" / "Celebration of Life" at the lake house on June 24th at noon (6.00pm BST)
Now, I'll be honest... I'm still bedridden & can't walk on my own, so I'll be immobilized & possibly drugged,
but so many people want to have one last chance to have a blowout.
Plus, there will be a commitment ceremony & drum circle as the sun sets that evening!
Please - no gifts, but I'd love a head count for the caterers!
Plus, don't feel the need to do any serious travelling!
Mark your calendars now so I can bring your positive energies into making this thing happen!!!
- Peanut has her party hat ready!
Here in the UK, those of us who have followed Gayle's battle with love and admiration will be joining her
by having our own little "Pool Parties" and sending our love to her and Christian, along with our party photos.
This is the only way we can "be with her" at this special time in her well-lived life.
"Share The Love" - that's our maxim, and that's what we do!
The Gits plan to hold their at the , the nearest postcode is
We will be on the exact site of Gayle & Christian's Handfasting and hope to have some of Gayle's favourite music to play,
as on that happy occasion. This is a one day event, Sunday 24th June - come as early as you wish, stay as late as you can.
Gayle compiled a play list of her favourite music - to see it, please click or
So what exactly is Team Gayle Force? Some insight from Brent & Melissa Sutherland...
We came up with the name " " not only because Gayle had the biggest kites
we had ever seen but she also brought the biggest personality we had ever witnessed!
She would pull her eurovan onto the kite fields at 6 am - blaring - and proceed to start
chucking kite bags and banners out of the back. It was all Brent and I could do to keep up with her!
In one case literally when we followed her to one year and clocked her at about 90 miles per hour!
She only slowed down to show us a handwritten sign saying "bathroom break at next station!"
For a girl who never had pockets she could carry more things than you could imagine
- walkie talkies, wallets, pamphlets, a whistle and some extra swag was always on her person.
She always had the kindest words, or if needed, the blunt words as well. Her smile will stick with me always.
I know that wherever she is now- she brought a playlist of music, and a soul packed to the rafters with love and laughter.
Good luck to whomever is trying to keep up with her now.
