I only heard Nanny's angry voice on two occasions. The first time was when papa would chase us kids around the house with this body pillow that was a giant fish. He would catch us and pin us down with the pillow and tickle us until we stopped screaming bcuz we lost our breathe. I remember trying to chase her with the fish pillow when papa wasnt home. That damn fish pillow cracked me up. The only other time I heard that angry voice was one late night when aunt chantal tried to go out wearing an inappropriate shirt. She was not having it. Nanny always meant well to anybody and everybody. She truly did teach me how to be kind to all. It shows an incredible strength when you can show nothing but love especially when you are upset, sad, mad, hurt, or in pain in anyway. You show love. You inspired many lives Nanny, I love you.
Your grandson, Tyler.

Aunt Gail was the best friend anyone could ever ask for. There was never a time that she didn't have a beautiful smile on her face. She loved life and she fought hard to stay with us as long as her body would allow. I wish I could have been home more often to see her.

Gail is my 1st cousin on my Daddy's side. I loved when her and the family would come to visit us in Georgia or we would go visit them on Satsuma Drive. Those visits were a large part of my childhood. I was always one of the group during those visit Gail made sure. Can't wait to visit and love one another again for eternity.

I am Gails baby brother, Jeffrey. I am going to miss this lady more than anyone will ever know. I just want to let her children know, as i am sure that they already do, their Mother was a friend to everyone she met. She made me proud to be a part of this family. She will be missed by us all but i do know one thing she will never be forgotten. From the bottom of my heart i want to thank everyone for sharing their memories of Gail with us and thank you for the continued prayers and support. The Family get togethers will never be the same and neither will the casino trips. I JUST WANT TO SAY ALSO THAT I LOVE MY FAMILY WITH ALL MY HEART.

What can I say that hasn't already been said about my Nanny? As her first born grandchild, we always shared an unbelievable bond. She always was there to make me laugh, make me smile, to make me happy any time I needed it. She cared more about others than she did herself. She opened her arms and doors to anyone who needed it. My favorite thing to do was sit at her kitchen table and play card games all night long with her. She made me laugh until my stomach ached and I couldn't breathe. She gave the best, warmest, tightest hugs. She took me on so many adventures, she made me enjoy life so much more than I ever thought I could. She always kissed my forehead, my cheeks or my lips any time we said goodbye. Our last moment together, we held each other's hands, I kissed her forehead and we said we love each other. With her gone, there's a part of me that will forever be gone too. I know she's not in pain anymore though and for that I am truly grateful.

Gail had to be one of the sweetest and most kind people in the world. Her kindness was simple, a sweet word, a compliment, a smile or hug, it cost her nothing but she changed other peoples lives. I know she is at peace and she is well. I love you Gail, and may your sweet spirit live on within each of us. God Bless your family.

I knew Gail when I was a teenager. She was such a great Mom to her boys and Chantal. A very loving and fun lady. I have some great memories with her... including a trip to the beach in Galveston one summer when I was 15. I pray her kids find comfort and knowing that she is with the Lord and no longer suffering with the horrible disease of cancer, She had a great life and made lots of wonderful memories remember her how she was.

Gail was my sister in law and was one of the best people I've met ever met. She always found ways of bringing people together, whether it was with games, or reunions, or bus trips to the casino. She was a people person and never spoke a negative word about anyone. I'm so thankful for knowing her, and that her kindness has truly made me a better person. I will miss her so very much.
