Gail's open and friendly heart made for many lifetime friendships and left room for new ones along the way.
She was known for being a kind and generous person who included everyone in the warmth of her personality and big smile.
Gails' beautiful smile and laugh could weave its way into any heart. Gail was fiercely loyal and devoted to those she loved and cared about.
Gail enjoyed flower gardens, the beach and the sun.
