We are sending our heartfelt condolences to all of the family. We had the privilege to meet Gail a few years ago at their home in Nobel and she was a lovely lady.

I had brought my Mom on our annual Nobel road trip and Mom wanted to stop in to see Duncan as Mom and him grew up together in the old Nobel village. Duncan and Mom had the same birthdays. Gail will be missed by many🙏🏻💕🙏🏻
