Shannon, I am still in shock that your mom is gone. I knew she wasn’t feeling well but I just thought she would be ok. It never enter my mind that I would be reading her obituary. 💔 we grew up together in that small little town in Arkansas. I am going miss her, and miss her sending me pictures of cats 🐈 I loved her. 💕

50 years ago last month, I started my freshman year at ASU. The first person I met was my new roommate, Gail. Even though she was a Junior, we instantly bonded and spent as much time together as our different schedules allowed. The next year we chose to again room together. She was so full of life, laughter and love. I am holding Shannon in my heart and prayers as she goes through this very painful chapter in her life. Shannon, please know that you were this light in your mother's eyes and heart. Love you, Gail.
