There's only one Gater.
And he would respond, "and he's the badest beast in the whole damn pond."

The "gator" was one of my favorites. I am sure liKe many 50+ year old's he inspired many of us who wanted to be Gates. RIP Gates and may your family find peace in this difficult time

Our loving Creator never intended for us to die and have to endure such pain as we do when we lose a loved one. As the God and Father of tender mercies, He wants you to find comfort in Him through prayer.
