I remember and just love Gil's fabulous and contagious laugh. I may not know what pranks my four cousins were up to when we all were young ones but dang if Gil's laugh made me want to join in on the fun. Say Hi to Fernoodle for me, Gil. Love to you Cher and the boys. Selene

I remember Gil well. We had lots of fun in high school and I would see him at the same places we all used to hang out at.

Our community is getting smaller and smaller. Gil will be missed by us all that know him from elementary or high school in the Canal Zone.
