It is with great sadness, that I tell you our local founder, Gail Doherty, has passed away.  Gail founded our chapter in 1999 and distributed over 19,000 blankets during her time as coordinator.  By way of remembrance I am offering this picture of Gail, second to left, doing something she loved, delivering blankets and visiting one of our donation sites, the Imus ranch. I am also including a picture of Gail and her husband Tom, who was always at her side and helped with Project Linus too. Gail's obituary can be found at:
