I am saddened to hear of Gil's passing. He was a very good friend as we use to talk on the phone and go out for breakfast once in a while.

I lost track of Gil a few years back, but he was a Great Friend and I know he loved his Family Very Much and he loved being a Grandpa. I know he will be missed by many as he was one of the most kind and gentle men I've ever met. I'm just sorry I lost track of Gil these last few years, we had some great conversations and breakfast.

My condolences to the whole family, he just lit up a room. But,I know he is Happy being reunite with his love Julia.
