It's special to have a friend for almost 60 years, and I'll greatly miss Gil. He lived life to the fullest, and was a devoted husband and father. Gil changed my life when he taught me sailing and then traveled to Miami when I bought my ocean-going boat. He was always that kind of person, even for a Republican; our heated discussions still ring in my ears. I send my deepest condolences to Debbie, Wesley and Garrett, and know that I and many others are there for you.
