Jim, Jennifer and Allyson, you know how deep my sympathies are for you and your families. My dear friend Gail of almost 65 years, from our early teens until days before you moved on, we never stopped laughing and sharing tears. Miles never lessened our friendship and never will. Love you more

I bought my current home on Empire Gold Drive from her and her dear husband, Jim. They were so very sweet to me when I was going through such a tough time. I know that the good Lord placed her and Jim in my life for a special reason! I loved hearing all her stories and her love for her family was certainly her pride and joy. May she be dancing in the streets of gold and wearing many crowns in her Heavenly home! Sorry I have another funeral and will miss this service honoring her. She was a true GEM! Prayers and my deepest condolences to all the family!
