It was with great sadness that I learned this morning of the passing of Gale Thomson, former First Lady of New Hampshire.
Gale was an extraordinary woman who will be remembered across the Granite State for her warmth and kindness to all.
I am only one of thousands of Granite Staters who have been welcomed into Gale's home and enjoyed the pleasure of her hospitality, humor and insight. She was a woman of great accomplishments, not the least of which was raising six wonderful children and serving our state as First Lady for six years.
Gale's son, Tom, has been a good friend to me and I hope you will join me in keeping his family in your prayers in the coming days.
