    I am very sad to hear of the passing of Gail Anderson. She was a wonderful person that I knew while working at Jostens in Red Wing, Minnesota. We discussed our animals alot and talked about interior design ideas. I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to Gail’s family….you are in my prayers.
