I met Gail when we moved to Middlebrook. We were both expecting our 2nd child.
All parts of our families meshed.We went out as couples;David and Sylvia played as well as Barrie and Cheryl. Although we moved not much changed.We shared meals in the sukkah,concerts at The Art Center and tennis matches.
Over the years we laughed together;cried together;shared advice and gave
encouragement. Gail would do anything for a friend so when my grandmother
fell in Bklyn and I had to bring her to MMC, Gail insisted on driving me.
She helped me get an ambulance and then had the best time following the ambulance at 90 MPH.It was one of her finest hours.
Despite her deterioraring health,she always called to check on my family.
She will be sorely missed.
