Roger, My deepest and sincere condolences at the loss of your beloved wife, Gail. I am so very saddened to hear of her passing. We had many wonderful after-worship chats and I thoroughly enjoyed "working" with her over the years at the church yard sale. You are in my prayers. May you be comforted by the love and peace of our Lord.
