As I sat this morning at Whidbey Coffee in Oak Harbor, I was urged from somewhere in my soul to check my email. Our friend Gail Rognan has been struggling for many months with bad health. She has slipped into states of dire health, only to rebound every time.

The email I saw when I opened my account brought a sad knowledge, and I didn’t want to read it.

Ms. Gail passed this morning after a valiant battle. While we am happy that she has passed onto a new and happier chapter, our selfish part is sad to have lost her in our lives.

Her family will be holding a private memorial.

You will be sorely missed, Gail… And always loved and remembered by those of us at North Sound Writers.
