He was my grandpa. He treated me better and did more with me than my own dad did. My favorite memory I have, which I think about to this day just randomly, is picking pecans with him at this big pecan tree by downtown Carrollton. I used to look forward to doing that and then coming back to the house and shelling them while granny made us lunch. I loved picking vegetables in the garden with him and sitting in the gazebo in the backyard and talking while Don cooked something on the grill or smoker. I love you grandpa and I'm going to miss you more than words can express.

I remember Lee Gilbert as my friend, someone I looked up to and was humbled by form showing an interest and friendship with me. Our lives moved in different directions many years ago but I never forgot him and would think about him and his wonderful family from time to time. I was so happy that Don, his son and my friend, found me and rekindled our somewhat distant friendship. It was a pleasure to get to interact with Lee agin for the short time we had.

Don, you are in my prayers as I know you not only lost your father, you also lost your best friend. I always loved the close relationship you had with your father - you were a very blessed man with that rare gift.
