The news of Gil's passing came our way today, and Jim and I are deeply saddened by your loss. Although we didn't know him well, our impression is that of a good man, family oriented, and highly spiritual. It seems he gave more than he took, and many will grieve his absence. Love, Jim and Cindy Carroll
