Gayle-Brown's brave fight against cancer, her warm spirit and the determination of her husband touched the hearts of many on social media.
She was scheduled to received 11 chemotherapy treatments to counter the effects of the disease over the next three years but sadly she did not make it.
Her passing has cast a pall of gloom over her loved ones and friends - many have taken to social media to offer condolences to her relatives and also express their devastation at her loss.
Gayle-Brown’s husband, Nieko Brown, was chief among them.
He wrote in a Facebook post:
Just want to thank everyone who prayed for my Cris-Marie Exquisite 's healing, this may sound funny but God answered your prayers immediately. He gave her Health eternally, she will never be in pain again.
Presently I dont know what to do with my self, we were together for 8 1/2 years and I am now in a state of shock as to how I am gonna continue. God.. I am depending on you!
Just cant wait to see my Cris-Marie Exquisite again, you will live in my heart forever.
Please... treat each other with love, treat each other with respect.
Love your partner in sickness and in health, be loyal to your vows and commitments, also... please seek the love of God and keep him as your saviour, dont wait until you need him. Seek him now
Thank you very much all, and keep me in your prayers as I will now carry the legacy of my best friend and wife into eternity.
Cryssie lives on forever!!!!
