We had been neighbors for many years. I truly enjoyed talking with Mr. Gaspard. He showed me where he did his painting and even gave me one of them. He loved animals, especially dogs. He took pics of my sheltie and later gave the pics he took. I will always remember him and talking to my husband I on many occasions. He will be truly missed. God bless you all, our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
