Galli was full of life. His contagious personality warmed everyone who was fortunate enough to be his friend. He loved family and a host of friends from childhood to adulthood.

Galli was someone you would never forget, even from a passing conversation. He was that memorable. He will always be remembered for that infectious smile and the gleam in his eye! He was ready for fun and he, Jeanette, and I had many many good times together a long time ago. I always felt like he had my back and would be there for whenever Jeanette and I needed him. He was a very very special person. Love you Jeanette.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr Cribbs at a Skeeters baseball game. Everytime he came to a game, we would talk about everything baseball. He was always a bright spot and one of my favorite people to see at the field. He will be missed!

The Cape/Summer Family hosted Gallie Jr for two summers playing in the Cape Cod Baseball League, And by the grace of God Gallie Sr and Jeannette welcomed us to be part of the Cribbs family. We knew we became part of the family when Sr. made and delivered us brisket all the way from Texas. On his visits to the Cape he taught us many things, how to properly filet a fish, how to say Y'all, how to have fun and how to live life to the fullest. We taught Sr how to be a Patriots Fan ....ok that is a lie, At Gallie Jr's wedding we were again welcome to be part of the Family. We love Y'all ! Sr. we will miss you! With Love from the Mulone's (The Summer Family)

Cindy and I were deeply saddened by the news. Our thoughts and prayers go to Jeanette, Rachel, and the entire family during these tough times. Galli meant so much to the family and everyone that he touched. His kind and gentle words along with his genuine caring for his loved ones will always be remembered. I can still remember his dance with Rachel at her wedding, dancing to Brown Eyed Girl. That was a very special memory.

May the family's sorrow and mourning be lessened by the fact that he loved so many and was loved by so many.

I am so sorry to hear of Galli's passing, but it did remind me of how much fun we had supporting our boys in baseball. Your family is in my prayers, god bless.

Share a favorite memory..........how can there be just one. He was unique, original, and a Blessing to call my friend. Baseball brought us together, but his gentle heart and generous spirit kept us together. Never without a laugh or a smile, his thoughts never far from the love he had for his family and friends.

This is not good-bye, my friend........for we never really say good-bye to those who have touched our heart. I know our Heavenly Father is with you now (might want to tone the jokes down a bit) and I know He will bring comfort to Jeanette and family during this time.

Until we meet again................well done, good and faithful servant.
