    She took care of everyone. Her home was always full….family, friends, and always love.
    And the truth. She would always tell you the truth. I was one of the friends that would drag my troubles into her livingroom and leave with a lighter heart…..She was one of my first, true friends and I will miss her. My heart goes out to her children Lynn, David, and Danny, and their families.. I am so sorry for the deep loss you are suffering.

    I witnessed how her happiness came from giving to others, from a simple (yet amazing) invitation for meal, to raising wonderful kids as her own.
    Our thoughts and prayers are with the family, may you find comfort in knowing she left a legacy in each one of you and her memories will last a lifetime.
    With deepest sympathy,
    Joe and Maria Yeager

    Gail was a beautiful woman inside and out. She was just a sweet teenage girl living next door to us and she babysat for us. She made us laugh all the time. I will surely miss her sweet smile. May God comfort her family and until we meet again, Gail, know that I’ve always loved you and you loved us, I’m sorry to have missed your service. Rip. Love, Dianne, Donna Rae and Ronnie Moore

    Mom, I am going to miss you more than my heart can take. He each morning will be hard without our phone call of the days plans and gossip that was just bursting to come out! Going to miss your great dinners, you made it look so easy! But most of all…your laughter, your advice, and your unconditional love! We will be together one day…but until then I will continue to live my life to make you proud. Love you to the moon and back!!
