  10. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Gail possessed all these qualities and more. I will always remember how she made us feel and for that, I will strive to be a better person.

  12. I keep “seeing” Gail & Uncle Leary up in heaven laughing & telling tales & carrying on like they always did when we all got together! It gives me a warm, comforting feeling of having been loved by two great people; & I thank God for those memories. I hope there are Cracker Barrels in heaven! (Ironically, Mr. Evans, the founder of Cracker Barrel also passed away Sunday 01/15/2012.)

    I am at a loss for words as I know that your mother was the heart and soul of your family; as is mine. Although I am sure you will always have that void only she could fill, but as a close friend I know you carry so much of her spirit in yourself you will never be without her… So sorry for you and your family.

    First let me say how vey sorry I am for your most precious loss, Gail was a one in a million. I can never pass a candy dish, see someone blowing bubbles, see “Batman” or watch OVC, that I don’t think of Gail and how very special she was to all of us. I will miss my very special friend, she and I were “sole sisters”, and for that I am most grateful. Love you Misty Roz.

  35. To the Vance Family: So sorry to read this announcement in the Richmond Times-Dispatch. In Gail’s days at Lakeside Elementary School, she & our troup members camped out in my yard for a Girl Scout Project, and we then went on to be Classmates at Hermitage High School – Class of ’66. I lost contact with Gail after high school. I remember her parents and sister, Sandra, well and they lived in the housing community over from me and the golf course. My sincere sympathy to all of you.

  39. What can be said about Gail? She was the kind of Godly woman people always talk about being but always seemed to come up short. She never let you know when she was down or in pain. She always had a big smile and kind words, when others were too busy seeing to their own wants, Gail was always there to give of herself while ignoring her own needs. She was and IS the kind of Godly example any believer strives to be. We miss you greatly Gail…. Love “Batman”…

  45. Mike and Family,

    I was recently reading my issue Old Dominion University’s Monarch and I was saddened to learn of Gail’s death. We roomed together in Gresham and Rogers East Dormitories. Gail was the life of a gathering and a kind, fun, happly loving person. I regret that we did not stay in touch over the years. She was a truly special lady.

    My Thoughts are with her wonderful and loving family.
