It is with deepest regret that we are sharing the news of Gayle Moore's death.  Heavily involved in TNGIC over the years, we thought it appropriate to share this news, as many people in the TN GIS community would like to know.  Please keep Gayle's family in your thoughts and prayers.

Gayle Williams Moore, 63 of Portland, TN, passed away Sunday, November 22, 2015.

Gail was always very helpful when I got stuck on something when trying to use TDEC GIS. She always approached the problem with a good sense of humor and great attitude. I am very sorry to hear of hear passing.
