Donald, David,Paul,Marie & families,
My most sincere sympathy for your deep loss. Gail was always so kind to me, always friendly, happy and genuinely caring. Even after the passing of my dear Frank, she would always take time to catch up with me. She was a special lady. I know her family was very important to her & she was so proud of each of you. A mom is special. There’s no one who can fill those shoes. I know the recent past has been a difficult one, I pray you find comfort & peace knowing she has now joined your dad and others who have gone before her. I’m sure you have many happy memories; may they carry you through the difficult days. I will always remember her smile and the twinkle in her eye. May God bless you all.

Dave & Nancy Aldridge
