    My sincere condolences to Gale’s family and friends. I had the pleasure of working with Gale for years at Metropolitan Community College. She was a bright star and one of the best teammates around. Gale often shared about her love for her husband, children and family. You all meant the world to Gale. My prayers are with you all.
