  5. Linda,
    Gale was such a kind and thoughtful man. I appreciated the work he did for me recently. I had known him all of my life, but had never had a conversation with him until that time. In those conversations I learned how much he loved you, Libby and the grandsons. His smile would get wider and his eyes would get brighter when I asked about any of you.
