Hi Scott, this is Vicki, I used to babysit for you when you lived on G Street. Our Mother's were great friends as you well know. I am sure they are having a great time in Heaven possibly laughing and having a good time like they used to here on earth.

Growing up in Ohio as a kid you were such a big part of my and my families life, we weren't really related but you were always Aunt Gail to me, and I'm glad I got to reconnect and see you again last year.
RIP Aunt Gail, I'm sure you and Mom are having one happy reunion wherever you are.
