Gail’s heart stop May 27th 2011 at 1:50 AM. She requested to be cremated and her ashes scattered among flowers. Her family requested the private ceremony to take place on her birthday August 20, 2011.

Gail always said, “I’m in the business of creating smiling faces. When people buy antiques from me they smile knowing they have found a beautiful lifelong treasure.”

The legacy lives on as Gail’s memorial funds the inspiring work the Smile Train is doing. Yes, the Smile Train surgically removes a barrier called cleft lip from a child’s face and replaces it with a beautiful smile plus a twinkle of joy in the child’s eyes called hope. I invite you to generously support the largest cleft charity in the world knowing that Gail supported them during life and now beyond.

You may know Gail as -- an Antique Dealer, -- a Friend, -- a Loving Family Member, or as the energizer bunny with her boundless energy and love of life. I was blessed to call her my wife, the happiest 9 years and 2 months of my life. Our wedding vows express who she is for me: “…I create the possibility of living in a world overflowing with romance, laughter, and love. I am honored that you choose me as your playmate, your dance partner and your confidant to share the gift of life with….”

Blessing,

Richard Porter

Dear Richard, We are so sorry for your sad loss. We called the hospital repeatedly and got the message that she was in the ICU and then we got the message that she was not listed. We are heartbroken and devastated that this tragedy happened. She will always be remembered by her friends and fellow antique dealers. You were such a strong mainstay in her life and we could all see your unwavering devotion to her. We hope you know we share in your sorrow and wish only the best for you. Our sincerest condolences. The Smile Train has long been one of my favorite recipient and we will continue to support it.

Richard,
It's been a while since we last saw one another, still I think of you and Gail and the time we had together at her homes here in Sarasota and it puts a smile on my face.
It's times like this when I'm reminded that we need to make sure that we tell our loved ones that we truly do love them... every day.
She'll be missed.
Ole

We were all blessed by the energy and enthusiasm that Gail brought to life... and her special talent for creating beautiful spaces. I feel fortunate that we were able to connect again just before she left the planet for a new experience of God's infinite existence.
Richard, I send you love and comfort as you begin a new chapter of your life, wrapped in the sweet memories of your dear wife.

Dear Richard,
We want you to know that our heartful prayers are with you and Gail, and all those she loved so deeply in this life.
It seems hard to imagine a world without Gail's multiple smiles and overall exhuberance! But she lives on in all the wonderful memories she helped author ... and those she now watches over.
Love and Light ... Jana and Peter

My heart goes out to Richard and all the family and friends Gail has left behind. I hope it brings comfort to know that we will surely see Gail again in the hereafter. Knowing Gail in the antique business, I can tell you her zest and love for all she did would be ever so hard to beat, or even match. I think the donation to Smile Train is quite appropriate.
Sincerely,
Richard D. Hatch
