    My condolences to Gail’s family. I worked with Gail for many years at Ceridian. She was a strong, caring and wonderful woman. We stayed in touch after she stopped working for Ceridian and would often bump into her and Gord over the years in our area. I will miss her ready smile and her resilience.

    i worked with Gail at ceridian and kept in touch with her in the years after she left – meeting at West Edmonton Mall for long lunches and catch ups several times a year. She was an amazing strong, kind and caring woman who lived life to the fullest. She loved her family so much and my deepest condolences to you all. I will miss her very much.
