PJ and I find it difficult to find the right words to express our regrets at the passing of Gil, our friend and neighbor. We are fortunate in the sense that we have in our home two examples of his fine work as a woods craftsman. Lois and Gilbert, we send our condolences to you and to his beloved grandchildren.
