I met sweet Gale about 2 years ago; I'm so very fortunate that I have gotten to know many wonderful women through Etsy. and through my beads... which actually saved me from despair in a very difficult time in my life. Gale discovered that she had an incurable form of cancer and shared her journey with me. I found out last weekend that Gale had passed on June 5th. Gale was a constant inspirational joy in my life. Always kind, clever and fun to chat with. I spoke with her on the phone several times and also the week before she passed. She was always positive, encouraging, kind, and helpful in so many ways. If you recall I also posted a message from her about breast cancer.
I am deeply saddened and I am praying for her husband Chuck and for her beloved pooches too.
Here is her online obituary. I know that many of you contacted me and told me you were praying for her.
