Gail was one of the sweetest and most genuine ladies that I have ever known. It was an honor to work with Gail for over 10 years. She was truly a blessing in my life and a dear friend.

I will keep her family in my prayers.

In loving remembrance of the kindest, sweetest woman I have ever met. She was quick to smile and laugh, and never - not ever - had a bad word to say about anyone. The world is not nearly as nice without her.

To Gail:

Over a decade of working together I never heard a discouraging word from you. You actually encouraged me one many days. Your presence in the morning lit up the office. You will be greatly missed.

To the family:

I am praying for your peace of heart during this trying time.
