"Miss Gail was such a beautiful lady. I became friends with her about 15 years ago with our common interest in sewing. We had many visits to learn something on the sewing machine or just enjoy some wonderful cooking for dinner. Her and Val were both so nice to be with. I will always cherish our friendship Miss Gail. Now no more back pain. Carolyn French"
