  1. Son

    Mama, I don’t have the words. Thank you for raising us the way you did, and for always being in our corner. I can never thank you enough for the love you gave us over the years. This still doesn’t seem real, and it’s a pain like no other. However, I know you’d tell me to pick up and carry on, and that’s exactly what I plan to do. Just know I will miss you the rest of my days, but I know you have God, Grandma, and Trevor on the other side. That’s the only thing that gives me peace. I couldn’t ask for a better Guardian Angel, and I know you’ll be teaching me and guiding me along the way. I’ll be strong for the family, but just know, I’m hurt and I’m lost without you. Until I see you again on the other side, just know I love you.

    To think that Gail is gone away from this earth is difficult to process. She was way to young! We were cousins and close friends during our formative years. Gail ask Christ into her heart while spending time with us during the summer. I loved her dearly❤️

  3. Never have I ever met such a sweet and loving girl. Her former husband filmed our daughters wedding several years ago and I met Gail sweeping the front steps at Thr First Baptist Church, prior to everyone getting to the church! This was just one act of her kindness I love you Gail , Rest In Peace.

  4. Cousin

    I am so deeply sorry for Gail’s passing. Such a beautiful lady. Of course I knew her Mama and Daddy, they were my first cousins. Gail will be greatly missed. Good thoughts and abounding prayers for family and friends.
