    I love Gail. She was an awesome friend and true Christian woman. I knew her when we were teenagers, and followed her through her journeys to Alaska and California and Illinois. She was an inspiration facing her pain with positivity and grace, as I learned from her how to cope with my Multiple Sclerosis. We laughed together over silly situations poor health puts us in during daily life. I am looking forward to seeing her on the Other Side. May the Holy Spirit comfort you, Doug.
