So sorry and saddened to read of Gail's passing. She was Head Twirler in the BHS band, my first year of twirling. She was so nice and so funny, and just a joy to be around. She will certainly be missed by many people. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time. "The world lost a sweet soul, but Heaven gained another Angel."

Gail and I became friends when I started visiting her mom (my former school teacher). Our family has many ties with Gail's family. We will miss her terribly. See you in heaven Gail.

Know that your mother and father are together again and will be watching over all the family. May God wrap His loving arms around you and the family during this most difficult time. I have such fond memories of your mother that I will cherish until we meet again.
