My condolence to the Gillis family. Many good memories of laughter and enjoyment of life when visiting The Gillis family during the summer months growing up. Prayers have been with Andy and you all during this time and will continue. "May the road rise to meet you, May wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face. May the rains fall soft upon your fields, And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand."
