How do you thank the person who not only gave you life, but taught you the secret to living? I know words aren't enough. Thank you for your love and selfless sacrifice. Thank you for a lifetime of friendship. Thank you for teaching with your time, not just with your words. In a world of selfish greed and superficial personalities, you rose above it all quietly and humbly by being sincerely honest and caring. I am wealthy beyond the riches of the universe because you understood the real meaning of life and loved me enough to share it…. And if you were lucky enough to know Gil, he shared it with you too.
