    I have only known her since she became part of our family when Gail married Keith, my son. She was a great lady and so loved by her daughters and family . We always enjoyed our visits, even though they were not too often. God Bless.

    Nancy and Gail – I am so sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I have many fond memories of your mom ( and you) living on 3rd Street. She was a wonderful lady. Sending hugs and prayers.
