Oh Gail, I miss you so much! I’d always known you were ill, but your optimism and energy made me forget how sick you really were. I’ve thought of ten things to tell you this week alone that you’d have cared about or been interested in. It’s so hard not to message you and hope you might reply. I hope you’re up there in heaven, a red-headed angel, with your body healed, making all those amazing things in your brain a reality. I cherish the friendship we had, and I hope you know how much you meant to us all. Peace be with you, and your family.
