    Gail had a beautiful spirit and will be missed. Sheila and I enjoyed going on skiing and camping trips with the “Baillie’s” very much. I have many memories of Gail, Ross, Krista and Kari having a good time on these family trips. Gail had a great sense of humor.
    Arie (my husband) and I appreciated that she was able to come to our wedding and that she made the effort to come to Buffalo Lake for Mom and Dad’s 50th Wedding Anniversary. (Norman and Geraldine Dennis). I know my parents always liked it when Gail phoned to catch them up on the “latest news” and to ask them how Dad’s health was doing.
    My sympathies to everyone in the family.

  16. My condolences to Gail’s family. Ross and I were associates and we were friends of Gail and Ross.
    For a few years, we were neighbors in Shawnee Vills and I was surprised several times when Gail would walk in my back door unannounced. She will be missed.
