Gail- you will be forever missed. You always did such a great job at helping everyone with our daily requests and needs at McAuliffe. I'm not sure how you kept up with it all. I appreciate all that you ever did for me and our talks throughout the years. Rest in Peace my friend.
Thank you, Gail, for all you did to take care of me during my years at McAuliffe. Rest in peace, dear lady.
You will be missed Gail. You had a huge presence at McAuliffe for many years. RIP.
We are sending prayers and hugs to the family! Gail was the rock that kept them boys in line. We will miss you momma Gail! You were an awesome lady, momma and husband!
Gail was a wonderful woman, friend, co worker. I’ve missed our talks and sharing Cherry lifesavers. We’ve lost a wonderful lady. Rest in Peace Gail.
I will miss our dedicated, friendly, hard-working colleague. I worked with Gail since 1997 and could always count on her to do a bang-up job and solve all of our custodial issues. She really took pride in her work and I will dearly miss her kind and friendly ways!
We will miss you so much. My summers down here in Florida won't be the same without you. 😩
But it was an honor to be here with you and the family these last three months. I would not have changed it for the world.
Love you so much Aunt Gail fly with the Angels.
Lots of love Ray and Ellie
I will miss our chats in the cafeteria. You will be missed
Sending prayers for your family.
Our deepest sympathies for your family’s loss. Gail was a strong and caring woman and she will be missed by all.
Rest in Peace my friend. I am going to miss you Gail.
My prayers go out to her family. I also worked for the School District for many years. Our paths crossed numerous times over those years. She was a great lady always fair but firm. Treated the kids at school as her own.
