    To the family of Gale,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your mother/grandmother/sister. Gale was an amazing person and I dont think words can express how much she has touched the lives of myself and my husband. Gale always had a smile and no matter how busy she was she ALWAYS stopped to ensure you were ok and give you a hand. She was a thoughful and forgiving soul whose love for others was unending. I did not know Gale for a long period of time but the time I did spend with her will last forever in my heart. She could always make me laugh and I always looked forward to going back into the department to see Gale and have a laugh. May you rest in peace and thank you for everything!

    Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this hard time.
    Much love
    Christine/Neil/Abbygail

    I grew up with Gale in Deloraine and we were close friends as teenagers. I am thankful that I was able to meet with her a few years ago in Calgary at the home of our mutual friend Gloria Perrin (nee Whitlaw). She was a special person and my condolences are with her family at this very sad time.

    To Lesley & family, I am so saddened by the news of your mother’s passing. Your mom is the kindest most loving person I have ever known. We had the ‘prairie chick’ bond that will go on forever.

    Take care,
