For us, Gil was a slightly older exotic cousin. Imagine when he came to visit us from across the border. His stries and his cars were always highly appreciated. He was always a family man. His présence at family functions now and again was always a gréât pleasure. Fond memories!

Sincères condoléances.

Cousins Camille and Suzanne Gilbert, daughters of Romeo and Gatienne.
