  • When my heart is overwhelmed lead me to a rock that is higher than I. My cousin you will be deeply missed. When I heard of your passing my heart melted because I had just recently saw you and we were having great conversation. I guess this teaches us that we should cherish each moment we have with each other. I will always remember your huge smile and welcoming spirit. What a joy in knowing to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.

  • Love you cousin! You will be missed.

  • I don’t even know how to start or even say goodbye. My Gilligan/bettycrocker left me and went to be with the master our god in heaven, a place that’s filled with love and joy. Sis! I love you but he loves you more.
    Father give me the strength to endure the hardships of this day.

  • I cherish the memory of growing up with you. We had great times growing up as kids. I will always remember your big smile and hearty laugh. We laugh at some of the craziest stuff. Rest easy Cousin – Gone but never forgotten!

    Your Cuz

  • Your passing was a shock to me. A very hard pill to swallow. I just knew my Auntie would live forever. During this time although my eyes may fill with tears and my heart is heavy. Knowing, that you know the Lord, brings some relief. You have gained your wings, no more pain, no more worry, fly high and be the angel you have always been!. I will defintely miss you, and my heart will always love you! R.I.P. Aunt Gail!

    • Condolences to your Family. I was extremely shocked to hear this news. I recently was speaking to you Auntie Miki, when we laid my Father down to rest. My last conversation with your Mom, was when she was living in Parkchester, not knowing that her resting place, would be in the South. Sorry baby for your lose, because, from the day you was born, your Mom thinks the Lord for bring her so much joy, to her life! Aunty is sorry that, I won’t be able to make the trip in person. When might all loved Gale, but God! Love s her more. She’s your spirit guide now, always remember that. Love you.
