Family, I’m so sorry to hear about Gail. When I didn’t get a reply a few weeks ago, then again last week from Roger regarding how she was doing, it worried me. I wish I could help the ache in your hearts. It’s always hard to lose a loved one even when they’ve been sick so long. I will see you when I fly up for the reunions – will be thinking of you!
Much love to all!

Gail and my dad were members of the 25 Club. As kids we had some fun get-togethers with that group of men. On behalf of the family of the late Hap & Shirley Bonn, I would like to extend our sincere sympathy. May you feel God’s comfort when you miss her most.

I am very sad to hear of Gail’s passing. She was such a kind and caring person and will be missed by many – especially her cousin & friend Joan English. May she rest in peace.

I was so sorry to hear about Gail’s passing. Gail and I were long time friends. She will be greatly missed. I worked with Gail at Kmart and have wonderful memories of the time we spent together. When Kevin and Danny were young I cared for them while Gail was at work. We shared so much as young mothers.
After I moved to Georgia we didn’t see each other very often but when we did get the chance to visit it was like we were never apart. Roger, Kevin, Danny you have my deepest sympathy. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you and your family.

Dear Roger and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Gail. What comfort comes to Christian believers at this time from our Lord’s words: “…Who saved us and called us to a holy calling…because of His own purpose and grace, which He gave us in Christ Jesus…Who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the Gospel…” (2 Tim 1:9-10). With my sympathy, Cousin Janet
