One year is looming large. December 1 will mark that day and I will be watching the Bengals play at San Diego. Dad, they HAVE to win...It's somehow fitting I find myself at a Bengals game...LIVE...on this anniversary. I miss you...not a day goes by when there is not some thought of you an some wish to talk to you. I'll see you in heaven someday...hopefully not soon...but soon enough. I miss and love you.
A couple of difficult events the past few days..."lefty" winning the British Open nd not being able to talk through it...and tonight, Ohio State and Michigan for 2012 was replayed...that was the last game we watched...under difficult circumstances...missing you...it chips away at me
On the eve of Father's Day, I feel very strange. I so not know what to do, feel or say...I have not been here before...but I miss you, Dad.
THrough the darkest times you led me back. THrough every pain you helped me heal. Through every sorrow you carried me through. Life is too different without you. I should've known you had left me something to help me and I didn't find it until a couple of days ago. I shall continue to write to you forevermore and hope to one day see you again. Love you!
Carolyn and Family
I am so sorry for the loss of Gil he was such a strong steady and loving gentleman and I know he leaves a great void in your lives. God did not take him until his work was complete. If any want to see the quality of that work they need look no further than his legacy that is his family. He is alive in each of you! God bless you all as you strive to go forward. I know the difficulty!
I look up at the sky daily seeking your wisdom for the choices that I make. I know sometimes I'm not at my best, but I want nothing more to make you proud. As we prepare to put our house on the market and get ready to move to Florida, I pray that this is the right decision. It is so hard not having you around to talk to, and all of us miss you more than imaginable. Thank you so much for providing me with the example of what a father and husband should be. Hopefully I will become half the man you were. I love you dad, just wish I could hear your voice one more time.
You have been gone for too long already I struggle, sometimes daily, without you there to speak to or even know I have the option to ick up the phone and glean some wisdom. Life has been hard enough the past 12 months...
I think about you every day and miss you so very much. Surely heaven is beyond what you ever imagined and the happiness far exceeds any on earth. Rejoice, Daddy! I can't wait to see you again and my soul rests in this gratefully thanks to Jesus. xoxo R*****y ;)
I will miss my Uncle Gil. He was always consistent, and I appreciated his love for and loyalty to you and his family. The visits with the two of you over the last several years as I traveled through Omaha were sweet times. I look forward to seeing him again.
Goodby Gil. You were a quiet, strong good man, and got stronger as the years passed. You've left a good and loving family. We will always miss you, but we will see you later.
i only met your dad once when he came to v isit his brother my dad william . sorry for your loss
From the entire staff of runza @ galvin road.. carolyn our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Carolyn and family,
So very sorry to hear about Gil's passing. My thought and prayers are with you and your family.
Dear Gilreath Family,
The happy memories of gathering at your house, especially in the summer, will always bring smiles to my face. I wish you all quick healing and hope many smiles will return to your faces when you reflect on times past.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Gil will be sorely missed.
I knew Millard from the 302 troop Carrier Wing at Clinton County AFB .We were crew chiefs on C 46`s. He was left handed and had a great curve ball.
A really nice guy.
I am so sorry for your loss and can only imagine how difficult this is for all of you. As Robert said, the Gilreath home and Sherry Lane was a second home especially on those nice summer nights. I don't remember the name of the game we played after it got dark out but do remember we had a great time. I'm so glad I was able to visit Gil and Carolyn when I was in Omaha on business 15 - 16 years ago. Spent a lot of hours that night sitting at the kitchen table talking about anything and everything - just like we did when we were in high school. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
I am so sorry for your loss. I only met Gil once when I was out in CO for Matt and Rachael's wedding. He was a super sweet guy and will be missed by all.
I met Matt at a military school in 2004. The following year I spent Christmas of 2005 with the Gilreath family. They welcomed me with open arms and treated me as one of their own. There are no strangers to the Gilreath family. They are the most loving family I know. My love thoughts and prayers are with all of them during this difficult time. Mr. Gilreath was a great man, with a beautiful wife who raised a great family. I'm recently married and I hope my marriage emulates the love I learned from the Gilreath family. This holiday season, when you hear bells ringing, it means Mr. Gilreath is getting his angel wings.
The Gilreath Family, thoughts and prayers sent your way during this tough time.
We are sorry to of the loss of your father ln law. I wish we could be there with you, but your family will be in our prayers. May God keep your family in his loving arms. Love always.
Summer nights through high school with four or five different families of kids gathered at the Gilreath house have made me want to have the kind of relationship with my friends and neighbors that I saw modeled there. Wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
God's Peace to all.
Keeping you and your family in my prayers!
Carolyn and family, I am so saddened by your loss. Thankfully as Christians we have the blessed assurance of seeing him again, and knowing who is with right now!! Wow, seeing Jesus face to face and in no more pain. What a thought! Will be praying for you guys!
We are so sorry for your loss. Everyone at Midamerica Cardiovascular Inst is praying for your family.
I'm so very sorry for your loss, but like you said- heaven got a little brighter December 1st. sending prayers of peace and comfort for your family.
