Judy, Wayne, Matthew and Adam,
I am so sorry to hear about Gail’s passing. We grew up together at West Haven School and West High. I reconnected with her after our children were born and we had some good visits. She was an exceptional friend, mom, wife and sister. I know she will be missed by everyone who knew her but especially her wonderful family. You are all in our prayers today and in the days to come.
