So very sorry to hear about your loss. Gail was (and continues to be) an extremely special soul who treated everyone she met with warmth and compassion. I adored our visits as kids and adults, and she always treated me (and all of our childhood friends) as a 2nd Mom. May she rest in eternal peace and tranquility the same way she lived her selfless, giving, and beautifully spirited life. David LaPiana & Family

Dear Cousins, Chuck and I are very saddened on the loss of our cousin Gail. My sister, Evelyn Cohen and I would visit her home on Sundays with our Father, Abe Rumaner. The two of us and Gail would always go to her room and play and have fun. Our family was large then and we all grew up together. We wish you peace and good days ahead. Fondly, Myrna and Chuck Schecter 2019-3-13 8:15 PM.

Hi Randy! Todd told us that your mother passed away! We were very sad to hear that! I always had a good time doing things with your Mom. And I was especially thankful to her for helping us by having Todd stay with you when I went in to the hospital at 2am when Steven was born! What a God-send she was! We wish you peace at this difficult time! Candy and Andy VonDeak

My sympathy to you Randy. I worked at Upstate Medical Center, 5C Pediatric Hematology Oncology as their child-life specialist. I met you (a baby) and your parents in 1977 when your Mom brought you for chemotherapy. I'll never forget how you, Randy, a baby, could sense when your Mom came into the room (even though you couldn't see her). You were lying in a crib at 5C and I was reading to you and patting your back as you rested (meanwhile children and medical staff would come and go and you gave them no notice) But up popped your head as your Mom tried to quietly sneak in;-) (after going to use the phone to give your Dad an update) Randy, you were so smart and absolutely LOVED by your Gail, such a great mom! My sympathy to you and all who loved her. Sincere condolences, Marilyn (Tickner) McNamara
