Gail will be missed. Her hospitality, friendly smile and distinguished laughter will remain with me. I always looked forward to our visits when I would return to Virginia. Heaven gained an angel and I will look forward to our visit in Heaven. May the Lord comfort and bring peace to the family and friends here in earth.
