I am sorry to hear of Gail's passing. She and I went to school and church together and were friends for many years. The Forbes Family and Wine Family were friends through the Mt. Washington Baptist Church. I was present at Mt. Washington Baptist Church when Stewart went forward and started his life as a pastor. My thoughts are with the family.

Dear Kim, we knew your mom and dad through our breakfast get-togethers at McDonald’s and she mentioned you and her grandkids often. We learned of Charlie’s passing a few days ago and posted on his wall and are now as equally saddened to learn of Gail’s passing. We want to express our deepest condolences to you and your families. We loved this sweet couple and know they will be greatly missed. Loretta and Ed Krawczyk, Independence MO
