Dear All....

 

I am starting this post for all to leave their messages for our dear Gail who has sadly passed away. My thanks to brother Hat for passing this news to us all.

 

Gail was second only to Hat to greet me here on the forum such a long time ago now. Shortly after, I was made known of her condition and that she was not expected to be with us within 3 months thereafter. But God clearly had a plan as Gail braved a further two whole years along with us mortals.

 

I cannot find the words that could possibly describe just how amazing her love, kindness and gentleness came through in everything she wrote. She deeply cared about every single one of us here, and anyone who came to the forum for support. She would always find the time and energy to share that support, despite her condition. 

 

As some of you will know, along with LDN and myself, she was known as one of the "three musketeers"! We would share stories of happiness, woes, tales of the Summerland and so much more. Never was there a time when my heart was not filled with joy when I received a notification in my email that Gail had left a message here.

 

She would regularly pray for us all, as we in turn did for her - more so during these final few weeks. Gail endured a great deal of pain as a result of her condition and had so many treatments that she would accommodate despite her condition. Never would she complain or speak ill of what she went through. There is no doubt in my mind that if angels indeed inhabit the earth, our dear Gail was surely one of them.

 

My thoughts are with her family and friends, and the community where she no doubt bought joy through her words and actions... apple pie.. brownies... and much more.

 

Gail, you have traded time for eternity. You have made it back Home where you so longed to be. It is wonderful to know that you are now at rest and the pain and suffering no longer ails you. 

 

With all my heart and soul...

 

...I love you my dear Gailage

She will sorely be missed but so relieved she is not suffering anymore. She was so kind and considerate. She had directed her family to contact us on her passing and to let us know how much she loved all of us. Know in your heart she cared for all of you, new and old members alike.

 

God has a special place for her in Heaven.

    It's really difficult finding support for conditions like this. There's really nothing at a local level so the internet is pretty much it.

I'm so sorry to hear about Gail. I didn't speak with her very often but she had such a calming presence and I could tell she was such a caring and lovely person from her messages. It speaks volumes when someone who suffers like she did can still be strong enough to lend a helpful hand and ear to those who are also suffering. Rest in peace Gail.

Beautiful words as always brother... your Princess will be looking down on us with love for the rest of our days for sure.

 

I am sure she will have found those waters and will be sitting on the banks near the wooden chapel she saw... with her wine... surrounded by Katou and Chin Chin.

I have loads of her posts saved in a folder in my inbox. They will always have a special place and I will enjoy reading them for years to come. We could make a book out of her stories!!

 

We just need a good title...

 

Brownies, Apple Pies and Mankinis.. oh my!

Hi All

I haven't been on the forum for a while. I'm so so sorry to hear of Gail's passing. Like Lyla I didn't speak with her very often but she was very kind to me on several occasions and offered advice and support. Even though I didn't know her for that long, or that well, it was very evident that she was such a kind and caring person, who put others before herself.

My thoughts are with her family and friends and also with Fishinghat, IUN and LDN as I know how much she meant to you all.

Rest in Peace dear Gail and fly high!xx

Forgot to mention....

 

Gailage always said to me that she would let me know she got to Heaven safely as soon as she could, and two days after the news got as far as ourselves, I went to see my parents. As I opened the door, there on the floor, used as a paperweight, was this smoothed marble-like stone with red-hues... very similar to the one that "appeared" in Gailage's condo a few years ago. For those that don't know the story, please ask!

 

I asked my parents where it was from and they said they had "bought it down from upstairs" :)

 

Gail.. if that was you, I just want to thank you for letting me know. Been thinking a lot about you today.

 

Love you my sweet pea.
