Gail enjoyed working on crafts, especially scrap booking and making flower arrangements.  Christmas was a special time of year for her, she spent months planning and preparing. Most of all, she loved taking care of her family and spending time with them.  Gail spent her life in service of others, and her generosity will continue through the donation of her organs and tissue.
