Many memories of Gail as we grew up in the 60’s. There was a huge work horse in our neighborhood in Sylvatus, VA called Bigun. Gail was the only one brave enough to handle him. He would hold a lot of kids on his back and Gail would lead us around on him. The Lewis and the Moore families became one during those days and remain so today. We love you, Cathy, and share your sorrow at the loss of Gail. My condolences to all of the family.

The Moore family moved to Sylvatus VA in the fifties. Our Dad’s knew each other driving for Hennis Freight Lines. We had so much fun swimming, cookouts, 6-8 in the back of a pickup at the drive in movie. We have been like family all these years. Gail, Cathy and Bill attended our family reunion in May. Love and prayers to Cathy and all who loved Gail.
