Gail was my roommate at Elmira Business Institute in Elmira New York during the 1973 1974 school year. We grew to be very good friends. Gail introduced me to her family who were the most wonderful, caring, loving, and generous people. Although I haven't seen Gail in several years my heart is saddened by this tragic loss. May God bless her husband, her children, her grandchildren and her entire family. Sincerely, Nora Sherman
