Edwina, Gary, Judy, sympathies from the Walstads. Gail was such a part of our lives growing up. When I was little I thought she was the neatest lady. I have lots of memories that I will cherish of her and Mom. They were the best of friends. Love and prayers to you all.

The Family of Gail Johnson, Gail's amazing longevity was very precious and her hospitality such a blessing. My memories include my folks bringing me to the farm where we would spend the night and were always welcomed. The food etc. was the best. We wish God's Blessings to all. Sympathy, Love and Prayers, Wayne (Nina) Emery.

I remember we'd stop by or honk as we drove by coming back from Williston. Or just driving out to see them, play some cards or just to visit. Hopefully she is with Edwin, Paul & Helen Peterson and having fun playing cards

Edwina, Gary and Judy. My sympathies to you all. Gail was such a special lady. I loved it when Edwin and Gail would come to the house in Grenora to visit and play cards with Mom and Dad. She always had a story to tell, and they were funny stories. I remember Mom and Gail loading up us kids and we would go pick potatoes somewhere down by the river. I am sure making a game of picking the potatoes is why us kids went along. We had them done in no time, and then we would have lunch. Such special memories. Blacktail Dam on the 4th of July, or up in Grenora for the 4th celebrations. Always time for family and precious memories. Gail and Mom (Helen Pederson) always had fun, and had a special friendship. Miss those days...God' Blessings to you all as you go through the days ahead. Hang on to the memories.
