Gail was like an older sister to me. I loved her dearly and she will be missed so much. I tried to keep her company while she was ill by sending and receiving messages and games from Gail. Gail was a very giving and loving person I will miss her so much.

I will miss my friend. If Gail was your friend, you knew you had a friend you never doubted. Animals instinctively trusted and loved Gail because they sensed her kindness and compassion. She had such an optimistic, uplifting way about her that was contagious. It was truly a privilege to know her.
