    There are so many good things I can say about Ms. Gail. What a great lady she was, whenever someone in my family was in Gulf Coast Hospital, Gail was always there visiting. Such a kind soul. TJ said this picture looks like he remember Ms. Gail. You have many memories and laughter to keep her in all your hearts. I am praying for the family.
