ADD A MEMORY

Where do I begin? Gail and I have been best friends for over 64 years. I've loved her as a sister and can't remember life without her in it. I will miss our marathon conversations and the times we spent together. I cherish the drawing of Jesus and the yellow roses painting she made for me. I thank God that he gave me someone as amazing as Gail to go through life with. It's going to be lonely without my dear friend so for now, I will hold on to the memories...until we meet again in heaven. I love you Gail.
And to her beautiful family, I offer my deepest condolences and my continued prayers. God Bless you all. Love, Ruth
