It's been so many years now since I've talked with Gail, and I really regret that we lost touch with one another.  I'm so sorry that she'd been ill for such a long time, but she had a wonderful family that she dearly loved.  She was a beautiful lady with a wonderful sense of humor.

I knew Gail from church and then at WTS.  Esentially all of my life.  I did get to see her from time to time when se was in Charleston.  I am so sorry that we lost touch with one another!  Gail always had a beautiful smile and was devoted to her friends and family.  She loved horses.which was a focus as we grew up.  Rest in peace.  You will be missed!

It’s my loss that I don’t think I saw Gail after our years as classmates. I always thought she was the sweetest, most wholesome person, and, when I heard she was a nurse, I believed she was the perfect one for that role.  I met Gail at WTS then knew her as we moved through grade levels, and I was a better person for knowing her. So sad to hear this news about her!  Polly

How sad that Gail has left this earth!    I'll always remember her kindness and positive attitude.  It was no surprise to me that she became a nurse either because of her smarts and sweet spirit!  Prayers for the family!
