Gail was the first friend I made in Dollard des Ormeaux. She was generous with her time, loved people and never talked badly about anyone. Gail was always, always happy to see you and I will surely miss that warm smile. We are very sad. Our deepest sympathies to Anna, Chrissie, Jonathan and Jennie....from, Pat, Alex, Fauzia and Yasmine.

We just found out about Gail's passing last night and were very saddened by the news. I have fond memories of Gail and Frank when I was a child, visiting them in Montreal. My mother, Bernice, speaks often of Gail, Jimmy, Wendy and Aunt Millie and Uncle Wendell. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

The first time I met your mom, she was warm and welcoming. I was shy and awkward, in a new neighbourhood and with my new friend (Chrissy). Your mom invited me in, offered me something to eat, and made conversation as easily as if I was a long time pal. And I was only 10 years old. She had a quick wit, a sharp sense of humour, and a great approach to life. What a great example for others who have to learn "not to sweat the small stuff". I am sorry for your loss, and feel blessed to have known her.
