    You will be missed. I remember the day I took you to the doctor. I knew you were sick to let me drive. I remember going shopping after dr appt. and on the way home we both cried and laughed. Im glad I was able to take you to the dr that day. Tamo is also glad he was able to take you to your first dialysis even if he froze his butt off. Milika gave you your last haircut. We were always here for you. You were part of our family for 54 yrs. Fly with the angels no more pain. RIP Gilbert
