  5. Veise E. says:

    I would like to extend my condolences to Mrs. Lantange’s dear family, and share these loving promises from the Bible with them. And I hope that these will be a true comfort in this time of sadness. Jehovah God is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. And he will wipe away the tears from all faces. Psalms 34:18; Isaiah 25:8 NWT. There will be a wonderful future when people all over the earth will not suffer illness ever again. No resident will say: ” I am sick.” Isaiah 33:24; Psalms 37:11, 29 NWT. Peace and happy memories of Mrs. Lantange continue to be with you.

  6. Don&Marilyn Stevens says:

    Very sorry for your loss.

    Loving thoughts to Ted, Scott, and Chris. Gail was one of a kind. She was loving and kind, but also very spunky. I learned how spunky she could be when her granddaughter, Brynn, got her first horse. I chose not to ride, but leave it to Gail-that woman climbed aboard – no horse was going to slow this determined woman. Yep, Gail had grit and determination coupled with a kind, generous, and loving spirit. We will all miss that wonderful smile, Gail, but know you are close by.

  9. Jackie buttrick says:

    The memories we have shared, will never be forgotten. Has they were the most special memories by far. One of the laughs we had. Was when I said I didn t need new friends I had enough. Oh my Gay what a big void in my life, had I not met you . Good things happen for a reason. And you were a great gift in my life.
    I will miss you terribly , but we shall meet again, to continue this friendship journey we started. Rest in peace my sweet Gay with love .
    Jackie and Fred

    Gail you were one of a kind a gem that shined ever so brightly. Never have I met a more bubbly and out going personality. If you were in the house laughter could always be heard. You wore many hats a Woman, Wife, Mother, Sister, Grandmother, Friend and in all of these facets of your life you unselfishly gave of your wisdom, love, and caring – be it sometimes loudly and always in a straight forward manner. I feel blessed to have known you. You will forever reside warm and safe in the hearts of your family and friends. My deepest sympathy goes out to your family – Ted and all please let me know if there is anything I can do – I will be right there!
