My sweet friend Gail,

I’ve known you my whole life when we lived caddy corner from each other. Even though we didn’t spend a lot of time together, I have enjoyed the times we talked at the kitchen table. Going to miss seeing your messenger posts. Mark and Jade, even though we never met, I offer my deepest condolences. I’m here if you need to talk.

My deepest sympathy to Mark and Jade and all Gail’s family. I only got to meet Mark, Gail and Jade once many years ago but did have a few phone conversations and have stayed in touch via FB. Know she was loved very much by many. R.I.P. Gail.

My condolences to the Ellis/Summers family. I got to know Gail through Facebook, but Mark & I have known each other for 20+ years when I lived in Dodge City KS.

RIP Gail. Mark/Jade if you need anything just let me know. I will always be here for you both.

Sweetie Girl I love you so much. I am so glad I got to spend the time I did with you. If I could do it all again I would. Although you left us to early. You have left me with your lifetime dream.

I love and miss you dearly!!! We have so many memories growing up together!! You weren’t only my cousin but you were my sister!! I can write a book here about things we have done together, but I won’t take up to much space! But one thing I will write is how special you were to me and to a lot of others! Your 21st birthday, driving around town hooting and hollering, oh my goodness why???
