    Auntie Gail was so filled with fun & excitement and was always a joy to visit and to share stories with. Even in the toughest of times Gail could always crack a joke or say something positive about her surroundings! She will be dearly missed for sure. We Love You Gail.

  • Rest in Heavenly peace my dear friend. The few years I had the pleasure of knowing you were certainly not enough. I will really miss the fun Friday lunches with you and Corey, but take comfort in knowing you have some wonderful company where you are. Fly free and high with the Angels, my friend!

  • Gail’s family was a great neighbor of ours for 24 years. She was a very dear and wonderful friend for 60 years. I was looking forward to her returning to live in Maryland again, but that was not meant to be. I will miss her. Condolences and love goes to Cindy and Corey.
