  1. I was very sad to find out about Gail\\\’s death. I had sent her an invitation to my Christmas party and she called me and we had a wonderful talk. I told her I would drop by with some gingerbread cookies and she insisted they be frosted. I did decorate a couple of cookies and called the number she gave me; then called rehab center and they wouldn\\\’t give me any information. I did not know anyone to call but after much searching I found out that she had died just a few days after our talk. I am so glad she called and I know we both enjoyed being in touch again. I met Gail when I was going to tough love and we became close friends and supported each other. She brought her grandchildren to my party and I could see the wonderful job she was doing with raising them. I am so glad she was able to accomplish that; you should all be very proud of her. Please share my condolences with her grandchildren. Thank you for bringing her that card so we got to talk. Your mother was a very special person and I hope these memories comfort you at this time.
