    Gil, Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. You were more than my older brother, you were my best friend, protector, confident and dance partner! Everyone that knew you loved you more than you can imagine! You're are back with Mom & Dad and in good hands. I'm hoping you and Harry can play some eternal rounds of golf!! Forever in my heart.
