Not sure what to say?

I knew Gail from Bay Med days. She was a great nurse, very kind, compassionate, and a pleasure to work with. Sincere condolences to her family.

It has been a very long time since I seen Gail and Art and I met them via her niece, Laura Bratcher, who was then married to my twin brother, Jade Haron, when Laura's daughter, Krystle was still knee high to a grasshopper. I remember
her being introduce to me as Aunt Weezer because there were two Aunt Gail's in the family. Even though Jade and Laura divorced, all of us remained close but for various reasons, I lost touch with Laura's family especially since both Jade and Laura passed...

I am so sorry to her of the death of Gail. She was a wonderful nurse and co-worker who always put her patients first. She received many accolades as an educator in diabetes education at the Saginaw Health Department, empowering many of her patients. She was a quiet soul with a sweet disposition. My condolences to her family and beloved pets.

Gail was a special lady, friend, and phenomenal nurse. We spent many years working together where I gained a great deal of collegial respect for her. I also was privileged to become a friend of hers during our time at Saginaw County Department of Public Health. Then, as our work careers went separate ways we continued our friendship. We had many laughs together and could always plan on those good times whether on the phone or together in person. Art and her boys loved her immensely and that...

Our condolences Art and family.

God bless you and your family during this time. I worked with Gail years ago but still remember her compassion towards patients and coworker's alike. Please know that all of us that knew and worked with Gail loved her dearly

I worked with Gail at SCHD and still have a beautiful Rosery she gave me that always reminds me of her and her kind spirit. I am sorry for your lost.

I'm so sorry to hear of Gail's passing. I worked with her at the health department for a number of years. She was a kind and calming person. She could bring my blood pressure down 10 points just by being nearby (and without saying a word).
