  2. There was a time in my life that I thought of Gail as a mother figure. Then she became my mother-in-law. Whether it was words of advice, a shoulder to cry on, someone to laugh with or just someone to chat with, she was always there. Although I am not still a part of the immediate family I loved her dearly and she will always have a special place in my heart. My thoughts and prayers go out to each and everyone of you. Gail (gadget) rest in peace and know how dearly you were loved and will be missed. Rez, you too will always be a part of my life. Without you and Mom I wouldn’t of had my two wonderful sons. Love and hugs to you all as you deal with this loss.

  14. So very sorry to hear of the loss of your mother, Mary. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family throughout this difficult time.

  15. I first met Gail over 25 years ago.They had the largest family I had ever met. All I could think was “wow” how does she do it ! I honestly thought she could run a city. Well, we all know she could feed a city. She had the biggest heart of anyone I have ever met in my life. God let her stay a bit longer than others just so she could make sure everyone was going to be fine. Now, I bet she is already asking “What can I do? or How can I help “? Gail, Go rest high on that mountain ’cause your work on earth is done.

  16. We are sorry for your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. During this time when your hearts are filled with sorrow take comfort in knowing that Gail is now in the loving and arms of the Lord.

  17. I’ll be out of town until after the services so I won’t be there. Please accept my condolences.
