My deepest sympathy to the family, you are in my prayers.
Gail was a wonderful and caring person, full of life and energy.
She always put others before herself. She was an integral part
of our daughter's care at DDR and always greeted you with a warm smile.
May she be with the Lord in eternal peace.

Wow! Words will never be able to express our deepest condolences. You have touched many lives. It’s so amazing to me how you met Amber, Norris and myself at different stages and times of all of our careers. And we all agree that you were truly one of a kind! Such a great spirit, genuinely friendly and all around amazing! It’s no wonder God wanted you back. We thank Him that He allowed you to be such a blessing to others while you were here with us all! God bless the family and everyone’s life that she’s ever touched.

It’s both shocking and sad to have lost such a wonderful soul. Gail was one of the first professionals I met while searching for services for my daughter back in the 1980s. We were thrilled when she came back into our lives thru her role at DDR. And now we’re just sad. She will be missed and her memory will forever be a blessing to our family.

My condolences to Deb, Curtis, Darren and Gale's extended family on their loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.

I was both shocked and saddened to hear of Gale's passing. I first met her when I went to visit Jane Parke and JC. Gale always greeted me with a smile and hug when I'd see her at First Christian. She was such a warm, caring person and I feel blessed to have known her.
