Gil, we miss you. We really think you wouldn't want to be around with this Covid 19. You wouldn't want to be in lock down. You're in a much better place than we are. You would've made it much more fun though. You're probably looking down on us and laughing at us.

Sandy and Ron

Gil was the most ornery man I've met other than my husband. He was a good person, a teaser and loyal. We'll miss you, Pick.
You suffered so much the last few years.

Your friends,
Ron and Sandy
