I met Gail during the very difficult time at the end of her life. Despite her situation she was a gracious and beautiful presence. Always upbeat and positive. A strong elegant matriarch ,who had a way of making you feel like a special guest! She was very commited to family and to animals she had a big soft heart and an easy smile. I will miss her, and I thank her family for sharing her with me. Blessings, love and condolences Lisa ( Gails nurse companion)

I remember Gail from John Oliver High School. She often stayed overnight at my parent's home on 47th and Commercial. I have lived at Sproat Lake since 1970. I once thought I saw her in the early 70;s. We looked at each other with some recognition but didn't speak. I remember how much fun she was and so beautiful. We had lots of fun together - such a long time ago. Although I haven't seen Gail for many years I remember her well. How lucky you all are to have had her in your lives. With my sincerest sympathy.

Gene, Sandy & family, my heart goes out to you for your loss of Gail. I am not able to come Saturday due to work. I will always remember Gail as a good friend when I was growing up, and my first experience with babies were yours! I loved it when Sandy came to visit and we became friends. I will be thinking of you and only time can heal!
