Gail will be sadly missed by all; she had a lot friends - with Sierra Shame band and all of their supporters to 4-H, and the jobs that she has had over the years. I will miss her smile, her laughter, and her wiggles (on the dance floor). She had a beautiful family - Misty, Amanda, and Shane, along with her grand-daughter. RIP Gail....have fun dancing the night away!

I will always miss my mama. Yeah we had our differences like any mother and child will but she is dancing and singing for all of us. She is in good hands up in heaven. She is with family and friends we have lost along the way. What im gonna miss the most is her showing off her tattoo that she got for the band. She wouldnt want us mourning her death but celebrating her life. I love you very much mama and I know I will see you again. Hailey looks up at the night sky for your moon. We all love you mama. Make sure you tell grandma, grandpa, and frankie hi and I miss them and love them dearly. Give them hugs and kisses for me. R.I.P mama.
