Gail Rice

Bob and Gail Rice (center) of Palos Heights sing at Hope Christian Reformed Church during Palm Sunday service in Oak Forest. Gail Rice lost her brother to fatal gunshots and has become a strident voice against the death penalty. After protracted court battles that determined the life of the killer, she believes death is not the last word, which is the lesson Christ taught on Easter. Tribune photo by Heather Charles
