I know Gil is in a better place with no more pain. We have the memories to hold on to, and there are many. Gil was like a father to Bob and me and we loved him so much and he knew it. We thank God for blessing us all for all the wonderful years he was in our life. Rest in Peace. Love you Buddy!! See you in heaven.
