Always remember the wonderful times we had when Darrell and Harold managed the baseball team. For some reason they always had to talk over the strategy for the game at Doris's Last Chance or Margarets 10th hole before the game. Many memories I will cherish forever. Love, Mary and family

I was so sorry to hear that Gail passed! We played together when we were children. We used to dress up as nuns and play sisters. Then I moved away from Wisconsin and as sometimes happens you lose track of people. I last saw her when my dad died and she came to visitation. Rest in peace dear friend, I will always cherish the memories!

Although I only knew Gail a short time, she shared a piece of advise with me that I will not forget. When discussing a family event ( with one of my not so popular family members in attendance ) Gail told me to "grab a turkey wing and chew on it " - that was an excellent solution so I could keep my mouth shut, and not tempted to say something I might be sorry for ! Always looking on the bright side !! You will have much to laugh about in heaven, dear ! You will be missed...

Gail's quick wit and sense of humor was always something special that she added to our Christmas gatherings. She will be missed. My sincere sympathy to her family.

Gail was a wonderful sister-in-law to me. I have many fond memories of her and all of wonderful and helpful advice she gave me. I remember her smile and her caring ways that she had. She was a good friend and a wonderful sister-in-law, and I will miss her. My sympathy to the Thompson family.

I have many wonderful memories knowing Gail for 44 years. I remember Gail and Darrell taking us out to Shakies Pizza located on 151 and East Washington to celebrate our engagement. I remember wanting that beautiful voice to sign at our wedding 42 years ago, but there might be a problem -- she was pregnant with her daughter. Fortunately Kari arrived on August 16th and a month later we were able to have her sign at our wedding with Ester Hughey. I remember what a great caregiver she was to her mother and her great attention to detail. I remember family birthday celebrations and love and warmth of the Christmas holidays. Gail was not known for her cooking skills and always caught comments about her bridge mix not having enough cashews. I have fond family memories of a caring and thoughtful person who loved to play cards, loved to know what was happening in our lives and to be included in our lives. She will be dearly missed. She was a wonderful sister-in-law.

Dear Thompson Family, Aunt Gail (as we called her) was such a sweet person. She was always so kind, and never was there a stranger in her home!. May God bless you during this difficult time. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Brian
