Jeff, Melissa, Lily and Ben - we will always miss Gail. She was a kind and warm-hearted lady and the type of sister, sister-in-law and aunt that anyone would wish for. We’ll miss her, including her creative games at family gatherings and her thoughtfulness through the years. We know you have so many happy memories that will keep her close to you always.

Jeff, Melissa, Lily and Ben, I am so very sorry for your loss. I am grateful that I was able to see Gail in the hospital on my trips up to Canada in the last few months. I think of all the fun times we had when you were younger. We reminisced recently about the very best potato salad that Gail made! Your dad and mom, Jeff will always hold a special place in our hearts. Jo-Ann, Ken and family.

We have lived across the road from Gail for 25 years. Gail was always there for us, a wonderful friend and a great neighbour! I'm going to miss popping in to say "Hi" and catching up with her over a cup of tea. We are especially remembering her as Canada Day approaches. She loved sharing this holiday with her neighbours and always put on a great Canada Day Celebration Party. She will be missed by all of us, especially me. Rest in peace my friend and thank you for your kindness and generosity and for the wonderful memories! Our thoughts and prayers are with Jeff, Melissa, Ben and Lily and extended family.
Rob, Caroline, Christopher and Jason
