We will always remember Gail and the long association we shared with her. You are all in our prayers
To dear Gail`s lovely family, Sometimes friends do not always let you know how much we know you will miss your mother. She was a fighter and such a fine person; I`m sure she left you with a wonderful legacy. You will cherish those memories and they will only grow in depth of meaning. Know that you all are in my prayers. Sincerely, Laura Ellen Tribbiel
We were next door neighbors of Gail on Suffolk Lane in Virginia Beach. We were good friends and visited Gail and Bob in Orlando. After his passing we lost contact when Gail moved back to Virginia. We send our condolences to the family and wish them peace
in this most difficult time.
Please accept my heartfelt sympathy. I have fond memories of the many years of friendship.
I miss you, mom.
