Five decades of friendship with this wonderful man can not be reduced to one memory. I remember the excitement in Joan's letters as she wrote of Gil when their love story began in D.C. The stories of the early years of marriage in Rochester and their California experiences bring smile. Houston became home and home base for travels everywhere. Always their love story had adventure and making those around them happier. They loved art and history, but mostly they liked sharing with others. I remember how great that they moved to Louisville and helped her mother. With them in Louisville we could celebrate holidays and birthdays together. We have great memories and their love story goes on.
