Lina and Family;
Galen was one of the most sincere, pleasant and concerned persons I have ever known. He was genuinely interested in what was going on in each persons lives and took time to ask when visiting you. He always remembered details of a person and their family members. We have lost a person who in his own time was a wonderfully rare individual.
My brother just wrote me about Galen. I remember you both from our times in Lamar. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you in the days, weeks and months ahead. Marguerite Cole Moore
Lina and Dena,
I am so sorry for your loss. Dr. Gilbert was a kind and generous man and I learned a great deal about life and fairness in my years working for him. I want you to know your family remains in my thoughts and prayers.
I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Galen R. Gilbert. He was two years ahead of me in school but we played many baseball games together. He was such a kind easy going individual. He always encouraged his fellow players by his soft spoken manner. He was a great friend and I am sorry that I have lost contact with him over the years. Our thoughts and memories about you will last for ever.
Dr Gilbert was my eye doctor from the time I started wearing glass in the 6th grade. I haven't found a decent eye doctor since. I send my deepest condolences to his family.
