Gail was one of the sweetest souls I've known. I'm sure you've heard that a lot! I am with the Boy Scouts of America and worked with her through a Character Ed program while she was at Redwater until she left to help with the newest grand baby. I hadn't seen her since then, but thought of her often. The world will be a less special place without her in it.
Prayers for your family.
