I'm very sorry to have to announce to you all that our dear friend Gail Farrelly sadly passed away on 10th March.

I received an email from her brother who told me the sad news. He informed me she died unexpectedly of natural causes at her home in New York.

Her brother told me that of all the writing venues she worked with, The Spoof was her favourite. I think this definitely showed through her spoofs.

Gail had written for The Spoof since 2006 and has continued to be an active member of the community for all her time writing here.

She will be very much missed.

That is sad news.

She'd always been around, as far as I'm concerned, so it's a big shock.

Nice of her brother to let you know.

Quite a shock as she was an integral part of this "place". You never know what's around the corner.

Kind thoughts go to her family and friends.

Very sad news, indeed. Gail was a wonderful person with such a kind heart. Her writing was wonderful, and her sense of humor was sharp as a razor. She was selfless and always willing to help other writers better themselves. She will be painfully missed.

Thank you so much, Gail. Hope you're laughing wherever you are.

That is as good a Eulogy as you can make.

Best of luck in the next life Gail.
