It is not possible to reduce Gail’s life to words on a page.  She will always be a wonderful mother to her children and loving stepmother to John Joseph Griffith, Laura Griffith Miller, David Andrew Griffith and Brian Adam Griffith.  She will always be a wonderful grandmother to Alexis and Madelynn as well as a step grandmother to Bryce, Evelyn, Hazel, and Isadora Miller and Hadleigh DeFord.  Her heart had room for all.

Gail was a lover of peace, nature, children, music, gardening, laughter and knowledge. She was an educator with an endlessly inquisitive mind and a keen intelligence.  Gail had the most wonderful human spirit and joy of life.   She is the best companion, friend and wife who will never be far away and will always be in our hearts.
