She loved to spend time with them playing games and baking cookies. She even extended her love of bingo to the friends of her grandchildren. Gail enjoyed watching their activities and spoiling them with sweets. She also enjoyed saying nightly prayers during sleepovers and always ended the prayer with “God bless Grandma Gail ‘cuz she is the best” which made them giggle. Her humor and wit will live with us forever. Gail and Scott enjoyed traveling together. Over the years they attended Golden Gopher bowl games in Tennessee, Texas and Arizona. They also went to Las Vegas to see a Cher concert and toured Bourbon Street in New Orleans. They were also invited to Boston by Sun Life Financial to talk at their corporate meeting.
