I know Heaven is rejoicing right now because the most beautiful saint has entered their midst! Gail Crumbley was the most comfortable and pleasant person to be in the presence of because you knew you would never be judged no matter what...instead, you would be deeply and sincerely loved! I believe everyone who knew her on this earth would agree...she was the most pure-hearted person with a deep and compassionate love for her children & grandchildren, her friends ( of which there were many), and for her precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! I know she is walking on those Heavenly Streets of Gold and she has her Dancing Shoes on! Those who know Jesus as Lord & savior will join her one day soon in Glorious fellowship for All Eternity!

Dear Family of Sweet Gail Crumbley...
My memories of Gail go way back to when she was a young girl and went to school with my kids. Then as an adult, she became a good friend who I could count on when I needed help. I loved how Gail was so "down to earth" making talking with her so easy and pleasant. In the past few years I enjoyed many meals & chats with her at Jane's house and had the privilege to drive her to a few doctor's appointments. She was always so appreciative of any help given her. She was especially appreciative when I would visit her mom & dad. I will truly miss this woman who I considered a DEAR FRIEND! And...I will continue to visit with her precious mother, Jennie.
In Christ, Andy

Gail was one of the kindest, nicest, friendliest and most genuine people I have ever known. I will remember her with a smile on her face, a kind word and a happy disposition. I always left our conversations feeling lighter after seeing her. Gail was a blessing to all.
So happy Gail is with Jesus in glory.

It's hard for me to imagine a world without Gail. We met at Ocean Park church when she was 14 and shared a lifelong friendship of 50 years. I remember her baptism, the births of each of her wonderful children, being welcomed into her family by Al and Jennie who were like second parents to me. She was my "little sister," dearest friend, and I will forever cherish every loving memory we shared with a bond that can never be broken. Nothing loved is ever lost but lives within our hearts. I grieve with you all today, and say Farewell my dearest friend...until we meet again. I will love you always.

There are so many memories I could share but the one that stands out the most to me is you telling me the story about how when I was born you told my mama that I was your baby and she would let you rock me in the rocking chair and would tie us into the chair with her belt from her robe so you didn't drop me and that you would rock me all day if she would let you. You will always be my Mama-Gail and I'll forever miss our heat to heart talks and your comforting words and hugs 💜
