What a strong, smart and loyal family man he was. He raised a beautiful family with a loving wife by his side. When I married Gil Jr., I was welcomed into the family with open arms and for that I will be forever grateful. Rest in much deserved peace Dad. I know the family in heaven will be joyous to have you with them now. Give Gil Jr. an extra tight hug from me. Thank you for raising a beautiful son that gave Jacob and I a wonderful life while he was with us.
Your loving daughter-in-law,
Joni
