Gail is/was a woman of noble character (Proverbs 31).  I say ‘is’ because she will always be with us, in every way but physically, until we are reunited at home in heaven.  After all, that which is unseen is far greater than the things that we can see (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).  Can you see love, sweetness, kindness and many other beautiful qualities that most define a beautiful soul or heaven itself?  She etched her beauty into the fabric of all our hearts.  Her work is done in this world and she deserves to be with our Lord in paradise now, where there is no more pain and suffering and she will have a body without a blemish and genuine happiness and bliss eternally (Isaiah 65:17-25). 


Matthew 18:1-4 Jesus speaks of those that will be greatest in the Kingdom of God and who are like children at heart.  Gail has/always had a humble and youthful spirit and could relate to people of all ages and walks of life.  She didn’t show prejudice towards anyone.  If she started to say anything that even seemed derogatory about anyone, she would say “Gail, that’s not nice” in a “forgive me Lord” kind of way.  She also had a sense of humor that never made her too serious about life here or herself.


In Galatians 5:22 we learn of the fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control).  Gail exemplified these on such a consistent basis.  Being as unassuming as she was, she wouldn’t think these things of herself.  She put others first, usually without a second thought.  She always wanted to be better and please our Father in Heaven more than she felt she was and now the time has come when she will finally realize what most of us already knew of her.


When she ascends/ascended into heaven to be with God, I am certain He will say/ have said “well done my good and faithful servant.”  For, that is the best any of us could aspire to.  When this life is over in our temporary bodies, what have we to look forward to?  God gave us our free will and Gail chose to use it mostly to bring honor to Him with her life.  She didn’t always use the words ‘God,’ ‘Jesus’ or Holy Ghost/Spirit to let others know who she represented, though she was never ashamed to say their names.  She just believed as St Francis of Assisi to “Preach the Gospel at all times; when necessary, use words.”  Her wish for all of us is that we would all find and have a relationship with Jesus so that every one of us will be there to see her on that greatest of reunion days.  She would want us to love one another and unite in our similarities and not let our differences divide us. She would also want us to smile and live life to its fullest when we think of her.  Thanks so much for reflecting our Father who sent you by showing us His qualities, and leaving us such a great example to carry on with.  When we think of you every day, we will always think of these things. 


Thank you for such a wonderful life and we look forward to seeing you at home.
