I was so sorry to read of Dr. Gibson's passing. He was a pleasure to work with and I felt honored that he considered me a friend. I just couldn't get comfortable calling him Hoot after years of calling him Dr...but that was the kind of man he was. He was never too busy to give his input on cases when asked and always had a tall tale to tell. I loved playing guitar and talking about music with him. I thought about him and Nancy often after leaving Life Management. I will miss him. My prayers are with Nancy and his family.
