    I think the Op may be confused with one of Gail's staff members who passed, as stated on the Smartluck website.

        So sad, one of her staff recently did pass, but yes-Gail Howard did pass also.  She was an original, a pioneer in lottery strategies that she shared with the world. Her travel adventures are documented in her latest book, "Born for Adventure", it reads like a novel-its great, I feel like an armchair traveller learning about different countries through her eyes. 

        Gail will be missed, we were blessed to know of her.  May she rest in peace, condolences to her family, friends, and staff.

                Has TODD, or anyone else, found reference to her passing on the Internet yet ?? I would have expected that it would be in the Lottery Post News Forum.  What about an Internet Obituary notice somewhere ???

                What is Gail Howard's full legal name, i.e. does she have a middle name ??

                  I have not found anything, and the one person who mentioned that the news was passed along in a private Facebook page has basically refused to copy and paste the info to me.  Also, all the official Gail Howard pages (website, Facebook page) have nothing.  So I have no way to confirm this.  Very strange.

                      Various obituary sites show more than one Gail Howard passing in the past year.

                        jeeps1 said she passed away Monday morning (Oct. 19), and that GH's personal assistant spread the news on a private Facebook page.  Very odd they would not let her fans know on their website or main Facebook page.  I know that their website was updated on Tuesday, although not with news about Gail, so somebody is updating their site.  Just not with news about Gail.

                          It gets complicated when the founder of a company passes. Only time will tell whether or not she planned ahead and planned for Smart Luck to continue after her passing.

                            I just called the tech support and he gave me the link to where it's mentioned. Strangely enough he was somewhat rude about helping me out saying he wasn't obligated to tell me. 

                            Edit: He did also mention that in time there will be more info on the net about her passing.
