My brothers and I grew up with stories of my mom and her close friend Gail. My mom loved her and shared great memories of the two of them being pregnant together, being in each other's weddings and going on double dates. I had the pleasure of meeting Gail and remember her as a really friendly & sweet person. Our prayers are with Gail's family and friends.

God's peace,
Egon & Kay (Dillon) Ruf family.

She was a wonderfully spirited lady. She and Jack made quite a team! Chris, my condolences to you and your family.
