Katie - I never had a chance to meet you - your Mom and I were trying to plan something together, but then she got sick. I knew both of your parents, we went to school together at Eastern in 70s. They were wonderful people and made an adorable couple. My condolences to you and your brothers.

Dear Gallagher Children,

Your mom was considered a "champion" by me and many other teachers working in Homewood SD 153. Her dedication to our schools, and in particular, the early childhood programs was inspirational. We could always count on your mom for support as we worked together to create innovative programming for the youngest learners.

I remember meeting some of you when your mom would volunteer your services at Pre-Kindergarten evening events. Whatever was needed, Gale's children, just like her, stepped in to help. By her example, she taught you one of life's most precious gifts...generosity.

My sincere condolences to you, your grandparents, extended family, and the Wallace family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers,
