I was very saddened to hear that Gail had passed. The pain of her loss is so deeply felt by her family. My condolences to all of you. She was a very nice person.

Carol Randall

Gail, you will be missed. Thanks for being a friend. I remember when I’d sleep in and go to the bus stop. She would stop at the bus stop and pick me up and drop me close to work. Wow! Saved my butt many times.
When she’d be baking, I’d be in the hallway of the Apartment Building, following the smell—-yes it was Gail baking —-again—-some good.

Barbara Tichy

I will miss her dearly..,We had a lot of laughs on our travels we got lost a few times but got back on track as I was the pilot and Gail was my navigator.She and I have been very close especially when we were kids she protected me when needed and fought my battles,I would mouth off and then say “Hit em Gail”,..Gail was generous to Tom and I she was excited to give you a special gift that was wanted but wasn’t affordable for mom and dad at that time in our life,s history.Gail liked family get togethers and sing alongs,and we used to sing together when we were doing dishes or cleaning our shared bedroom.Gail loved her children,as she did mine and Tom,s.We used to look forward to her Christmas gifts as she usually made them,bunny mitts and nursery rhyme pillow cases .I would send my gifts and Barbara said they felt the same when they arrived broken cookies and all.What a great sister,Im sorry she had to leave us,but I didn’t want her to suffer any more either.Good bye Gail ,I.ll always .love you…..Your little sister
