Memories Timeline


  1. Brie & Dan- We were so very sorry to hear of your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

    Brian and Jane Taber (Jenn VanDerwerken’s parents)

  2. Brieanne and Elana you have my deepest sympathies. I met you all thru your father whom I went to school with and followed his band around. Your mother was the kindest most easy going loving person I have had the pleasure of knowing. She will be sadly missed. Gail you leave behind a empty spot in my heart. Love you, Mike

  3. Brieanne, I am so very sorry for the loss of you and your family. Your mother raised a wonderful, caring daughter and I am sure she will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  4. Brieanne,

    We are so very sorry for your loss. Please know that we are thinking of you and all your family and keeping you in our thoughts and prayers. We are here for you now and always. We are sending you all our love…

  5. Dear Elana

    We are so sorry to hear about your Mom’s passing. Below are some comments from the Nursing Department Faculty and Staff

    Bidwell-Cerone: Elana has walked the walk this semester. She moved home in order to be her mother’s caregiver and, in so doing, made it possible for her to
    die at home, which was her mother’s last wish. What a great example of a fine
    nurse and human being. SB-C

    O’Toole: Some students have more than is fair to bear- and they bear it with
    grace that is inspiring.

    Lovett: Elana is a tremendous help to me in the planning of the pinning ceremony. I would like her on my team any day. She is very effective and
    displays great leadership abilities.

    All: We are all with you and pray for your family. Our deepest condolences to you and your family. Your family is blessed to have you.

  6. Gail touched many lives during her life journey. Her smile was contagious. She was a special high school classmate of mine. I will always treasure the memories of her friendship. The Lord has chosen Gail to be with Him now. She is no longer suffering. Her pain is gone. I am thankful for that. She will always be with us in our thoughts and prayers. God will comfort all of us with His love, which will gradually ease our heartache with peace. Love in Him, Pam

  7. Gail was a caring person, who was well thought of by many of her fellow Webster High school classmates.

    She is sorely missed, and remains in our thoughts and prayers.

  8. Gail was a powerful inspiration to me. She served God with reckless abandon. I am happy for her that she is now in the place we all find our hope for in anticipation of heaven. She will be missed but she is with Jesus now…praise be to Him!

  9. Gail was my next door neighbor for many years. One could not hope to find a more loving and compassionate person. Often, during our conversations, she would say, ‘Someday I will be with the Lord.’ In spite of the loss to her friends, I’m sure she will be embraced in the loving arms of her Lord for all eternity. We who experienced your love and friendship will never forget you. May you rest in peace with the angels.

  10. Hi Brieanne,

  11. I am deeply saddened to hear of Gail’s passing. I went to school and worked with her husband Bill for many years before his passing sometime ago. He was a great friend and he and Gail were always generous and gracious. Although I know they won’t remember me, as I have not seen Brieanne and Elana since they were both very small, my deepest sympathies go out to you both and your family. You are and have always been in my prayers.

  12. I thank God we had 12 wonderful years and tears. I miss you already. But I know we will see each other someday. Your faith in the Lord was so inspiring. Brieanne, Dan, and Elana my heart breaks for and with you. I love you. Love Sandy and Richard

  14. I worked with Gail at Daystar and loved her. What a nice, sincere, talented, optimistic lady to be around. She absolutely loved the babies and had such a special way with them.

My sincere sympathy to her daughters and all her family.

Your girls are blessed to have had you as a Mom. In Jesus’s love , Karen

  17. My heart is full of sadness as well as Joy for Gail and her family. She’s up in heaven w/ the Lord and out of pain-thats my Joy, my sadness is she’s gone from all of us. I’ve know Gail since we were 15-Freshmen in High School and we were able to stay in touch w/ each other thru the many years of adulthood, marriages & children. Being w/ her on our High School Reunion Comm. these last 5 years reaffirmed our friendship, we’ll pray for your girls and family! Love Mary & Paul

  18. My precious sister Gail, You are home and you are free. I shall never forget how you ‘carried’ me through VBS,. I was the teacher, you were the assistant. You and I know full well that you were in charge and that you carried me and our precious little ones all week. I remember sister your incredible gifts of artistry and insight. I remember how much you talked about your own ‘babies’, how much you loved them, how you were so proud of them. Now you are home, save us a place, and tell our Savior how much we love him. Our prayers to your precious angels. With sadness, joy, and humilty,
