Gale was one of my favorite cousins. I will remember her wonderful humor. We could talk for hours! She will be missed.

Gale was a very special, one of kind person! When she laughed, it was so genuine and hearty, it didn’t matter if you knew what she was laughing about, you just had to laugh to because it was so contagious! I’ll miss her tremendously! My thoughts & prayers go to everyone in the family and Baxter who is probably wondering why mom isn’t there anymore.

I am so sorry to hear about Gale’s passing. She is one of the few cousins that I actually grew up with. Gale and Jeanne would babysit my brothers and sisters when we were younger. I always got such a charge out of Gale- her humor, her laugh-she was contagious!! I will miss her but I have great memories of her. I hope that your kids’s memories of your mom will give you some comfort. I’m sure that you will be able to laugh about your mom when you are all together. I am so sorry for your loss. Love, Debbie (Woodstock) Huck
