    My prayers and thoughts go to Gail's beloved family. She was such a wonderful & special friend for the past 40 plus years and it's difficult to picture life without her in it, especially our nightly chats. She was a special friend to so many and touched so many lives in her lifetime. Rest in peace, my dear friend and God bless your family.

    Very sad to learn about Gail. Though we only met Gail in person a couple of times, Gail and Bill were my "sister and brother" on the East Coast.
