I met Gail on June 1st of this year at my salon. She came in with Leah, her daughter, and we had a lovely time together! Gail was such a genuine, kind-hearted woman! You can see just how amazing she was by the children she raised. Her legacy will live on through her kids and grandkids. She is now pain free in heaven, but will be missed on this earth my all who knew her.

I am so sad to hear of Gail's passing. You're family will be in my prayers. I have only good memories of her growing up. I was blessed to have known her.

I am sorry that I never had a chance to meet you. But I have met your daughter Leah, and she is a beautiful human being. Anyone that could have raised such a beautiful daughter must have been themselves a beautiful soul. My Hope for your family is they find comfort in the remembrance of the beautiful person you are. Peace love and joy.

My deepest sympathies go out to Gail's husband and family. Gail and I went to Jefferson school and on up. We had many fun times together growing up. Gail has such a good sense of humor. She will be missed from our class but never forgotten.

So sorry to hear this sad news. I have actually been thinking about Gail lately, wanted to contact her but couldn't find a number or address. We grew up together for a number of years.
