Much of Olen and Gail's life was spent in the music business in Nashville, Tenn., where Olen had a recording contract and both wrote songs. Chasing dreams and providing for a family were in conflict at times, with family always coming first. After working in Florida where Olen's health became an issue, they moved back to their beloved Arkansas, where they were surrounded by family and friends up until Olen's passing. Gail retired from Kroger Pharmacy in Little Rock and then moved to Texas to be near their daughter, Angelia and granddaughters, Emma and Grace. Gail was an extraordinary mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter and friend who always gave sacrificially to family and friends. She was an incredibly gifted song writer who contributed much to Olen's career. She will be greatly missed by all, but we know she is now reunited with Olen, her parents and near to the Lord that she loved.
