Life Story Info
I love Gail. I had the chance to really get to know her on a trip to St. George. 5 hrs. down 5 hrs back.....we sang....ate....cried....and laughed. She had a fantastic sense of humor. She was the light of my brothers (John's life). Contact me John....lets stay in touch. She would not want to see your light go out. To the family....he loves all his children...grandchildren so much. Rally around your dad/grandpa now...he needs you. I am so glad for that long road trip to get to know Gail better. She loved her family and talked about all of you with such great love.
