    Our hearts are absolutely broken for you guys. Gail was such a precious and sweet lady and this is all so unbelieveable. Your family is one of the strongest families we have ever known. Strong in your faith, and in your love for each other – and that is just a very small part of the legacy she leaves behind. Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross so that we can have eternal life together. What an amazing day it will be when you see her face to face again!

    We love you guys so much.
