John,

Please accept my heartfelt condolences. Gail was an amazing person. I will always remember how good she was to me from the day I came to Harrisburg to the last time I saw her. Almost always smiling. I will miss her greatly.

She welcomed me into the Democratic community as a new resident with warmth and friendship. She was a dedicated worker toward all our values of equal opportunity and justice.

Dear John,
May God Grant You Strength. Words can not express my sadness upon hearing that Gail died of heart complications. She had the biggest heart when it came to her helping others. Gail had a place in her heart for everyone. It was a glorious occasion when you both married and your love for each other never wavered. May God Grant Her, Peace and Eternal Memory.
