My heartfelt condolences Mr. Bob.
I think about Ms. Gale selling half and half tickets, which was always so nice of her to do. One of the most memorable times is when she sold me the "winning" ticket. I gave her a kiss on the cheek and big hug. I'm sure she's in Gods loving arms being hugged right now. Love you Ms. Gale.
