I will always look back fondly upon summers at Grandma's cabin on Intermediate Lake, especially her cherry crisp made with fresh fruit we picked at a local orchard. I am grateful that my daughters were able to get to know her; she will be missed greatly.

Hey Aunt Gail. I wanted to say I love you and miss you guys. I don't know how you stay so strong during Bill's health and Grandma's passing. I have heard a lot about Uncle Bill and Grandma the past couple of years. You guys have been in my prayers. You and my mom are some of the strongest women I know. I will miss Grandma. I love you.

I loved Gail's mom very much. She always treated me very well, even though I did something wrong, like go fishing at dinner time. I will miss her more than ever, but I know she is well in heaven.
