Guest Book Highlights

November 14, 2020 "I just learned of Gail's passing and send my deepest condolences to Gail's family. She did so much to improve many lives. Gail was my "little sister" in our MHS sorority. We were both journalists but grew apart after then due to different colleges and jobs. We both started our newspaper careers in different states. However, I followed Gail's wonderful career and read all her books. She will live on through her work. Well done my friend. Love Chris Hay Silva" - CHRIS SILVA (ATLANITS, FL)

September 02, 2020 "She deeply influenced my life and career with her book Passages. My sincere condolences to her family." - Sarah Tarrow (Chicago, IL)
August 29, 2020 "My husband and I have been married 53 years and were helped along the way by Gail Sheehy's series of books: Passages, New Passages, Mens Passages, & the Silent Passage. I was an educator and parent and read many books about the stages of childhood. It made sense to me that stages do not stop as adults and Gail's books led generations through growth with knowledge and compassion for ourselves and others. Then last year we read Gail's memoir, Daring, and learned so much more about her and her adventurous lifetime than just helping us get through our own life. What a wonderful life full of love and adventure and meaning. We honor her memory and are sad she has passed on. All the best to her future lives and her family. Sincerely, Jeanine and Guy Saperstein" - Jeanine & Guy Saperstein
August 28, 2020 "My deepest condolences to the family of Gail for your loss. Remember the days of old (Deu. 32:7) memories that will bring a smile to your face when you think of Gail and the love she had for you." - Regina (MS)
