Our thoughts and Prayers are with you and yours Rob.
Rob, Mel and I are very sorry to hear of Gail’s passing. She was such a sweet lady and I always enjoyed talking with her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Prayers for all the family. Prayers for lots of beautiful memories to ease the burdens you are carrying. I hope you all know how much Gail was loved and how she blessed us; also, how much you all are loved, too.
Allison, Jim and the kiddos my thoughts are prayers during this time. Always a phone call away.
Gail was such an inspiration to everyone! She served lovingly and selflessly and would do anything for others. She never ran out of subjects to talk about. She was fun to serve with and I learned a lot from her. Our lunches with Amy in Bellevue were so much fun, I wish we had done it more often. I loved being her visiting teaching partner a few years ago. She kept the conversations lively and interesting. Her love for scrapbooking, decorating, gardening & flowers, jewelry making and everything beautiful defined her. Her lessons in Church were wonderful. She will be missed and it will definitely not be the same without her. Much love and many prayers & hugs for her family… I know how much she loved you all! Our hearts hurt for you, but we know that your sweet memories of her will bring you peace.
My condolences, thoughts and prayers to the Ridoutt family. So many great family memories growing up together. You will be missed.
Iam so very sorry.
My Deepest Sympathy ♡
Rob and family:
My deepest condolences to you and everyone affected by this loss. So tragic and much too soon. Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way.
I loved Gail from the first time I met her. I was so happy for her and Rob and attended their wedding. She was my friend and confidant and I rejoiced in her pleasures. Gail loved beauty–and would often give me suggestions as to how I could make my surroundings–and my life–more beautiful. We picked out pillows and rugs together and she offered kitchen design ideas when I was remodeling. We laughed and giggled together. She was warm, funny, loving, adventurous, and she adored her family. My deepest condolences to my dear friends for their loss.
I had no idea. I am so sorry. You are in my prayers. I love you both!
Phil, Amy, Jacob, & family
Our prayers & sympathies are with you.
