Chris, My condolences to you, your mother and your brother for your loss. Expect a dizzying mix of emotions: grief, sadness, regret, relief and many more will swirl for quite some time. Don’t hesitate to call me if you need a friend who has recently been there. Lisa

Gail took the time to share his cooking expertise with my junior high aged daughter years ago.
He and Paula took my daughter, for the DAY, and taught her to make pierogis!!. Not only did Gail patiently teach her the method, but then shared in the finished product. THEN sent some home as well. Such a gentle, kind hearted, giving, sharing soul.
He will truly be missed. He made a difference!
