    Shelly, Joanne, Chris & Family
    My condolences on the loss of your mother and grandmother. She was such a kind, caring and compassionate lady. Gail was selfless in her giving and always put the needs of others before herself. Crystal looked forward to those long distant calls and long chats with Grandma. She will be missed by many. RIP Gail.
