    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.

  18. C.Underwood and family on June 26th, 2013 11:58 am

    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.
