Mary Jane & Sons,

It is with shock and sadness that I learned that we have lost my old buddy Gil, so please accept my sincere deepest sympathy. Gil and I go back almost 60 years to first grade at Evergreen School (see attached 2nd grade photo). We remained good friends through junior high and high school. Since Gil was a month older than me he got his drivers license first and was kind enough to take me down to Washington Blvd to take my driver's test. We both practiced being tough guys back then, while alternating weight lifting between my house and his (see attached photo). After leaving Pittsburgh in 1971 for Texas and beyond, I lost touch with my old buddy until two years ago when I cold called him to ask a question about my purchasing a welding machine. He reacted like we were still good buddies that had been constantly in touch and he gave me great advice. If you recall, I stopped by your house a few months later to thank him and we all had a nice chat (see attached photo). I am very glad we had that chance to catch up and to meet your sons. Please know that I will miss my old buddy and I am thinking of all of you in this sad time. Paul Maslanka - Flower Mound, TX
