So sorry to hear of Gail's passing, she & Lib are together with their Lord. So hard for the family they left behind but so joyful for them. I'll never forget Gail and her kindness to me at Lib's funeral - her words were so special and her kindness more than expected. Prayers and love to the family. Roger & Suzy Guffey

You were one of the strongest women I ever knew. You loved your family more than life. You were a brave lady and I will miss you and our talks so much. You made me laugh, you made me cry. You touched my heart. I love you and I know you are in a much better place, with the Lord. Rip my sweet friend. You will be forever missed and remembered.
