    I had the pleasure of working with Gayle at Cigna HealthSpring. She was a very sweet person. So kind to all that she came in contact with. She never had a cruel word for anyone and always had the sweetest smile. I am so sorry for the families loss. I know that she will be greatly missed. You all will continue to be in my prayers. ~ Sherry
