I will never forget how impressed I was in reading his history on the jacket of “Chianti in Connecticut”, he turned himself around by battling his demons.
That was amazing. The other thing he said to me was that he learned colloqial Italian by reading the Fummetti. (Tex was among his favorites, a character not unlike Don Quixote.)

Such a lovely man, we still remember you so fondly from the day we visited you in New York and you generously spent your time with us, we remember him driving us to the Botanic Gardens and then eating dinner in your flat. I remember from our conversations with Gil that he overcame many obstacles in his life and did much to help others. His poetry was wonderful.

I was shocked and saddened by the news of Gil's passing. I'll always remember his shy smile and beret. My prayers and heartfelt condolences.

That was a hard, hard departure for you both, yet seemingly with some moments spared from his suffering for you each to say what little remained to be said after such a strong marriage, a marriage that shared not only staggering burdens but support of each other’s art…gentle persistence at his art, against social wrongs, and in his friendships.

Know that both of you are loved by a large support community of fellow writers and the our love will hopefully offer some relief from your grief. This great sorrow will slowly fade, and beautiful memories of a life well lived will remain forever in your heart.

Gil was a wonderful man, a sensitive rebel who actively worked to make things better in the world. So love the "thumbs-up" pic you sent of him! It was glorious that you shared poetic gifts and were able to support each other in your creative work.

Oh my Lord no. His talent, sense of value, and commitment to justice and beauty will be missed. As will his welcoming friendship. He will greatly be missed, and remembered for all he was, and gave. My deepest condolences to Maria.

Tell Gil I love him, and that to know him has been one of my life's blessings. I can only aspire to be such a good person, such an insightful, profound, and also gentle person.
