During this special festival time there was a night of hymns orchestrated around a theme of “Let All the World in Every Corner Sing”.  Choirs from all around the world were united as one in song which Gail performed in voice and heart along with her fellow choir members of First Baptist Church.  

Gail will be greatly missed by all her family as well as friends, community, and her church family of First Baptist.  She will leave behind many cherished memories as well as her constant steadfast faith living and abiding in God’s word always.
