Emma, I am so very sorry to hear of Gil's death. Brought memories of hearing his band play and being with you all in general. You have my deepest sympathy. My husband also passed shortly after I retired, and it is not expected, and shatters all the dreams of your future plans. You were a very good friend when we worked at KOC, and I still miss you. God bless you and your family.

I Remember the time we were down stairs on the porch and we had a fire going. He had gotten an idea to go get his guitar and put on a little concert for us kids and adults. And he was always funny so we found a mop and he got the end of the mop it was blue and it kinda looked like dreadlocks and it was so funny. He smoked cigars so he was acting funny with the cigar out his mouth singing. We were all dead laughing and he-just loved to make us smile and loved how we would dance and sing or sing with him. He had this big smile and a laugh you could hear from 10 miles away . And let me tell you that’s the best papaw anyone could ever had.😪😇 But we just have to know he’s in a real good place now and his will protect him and he will protect us.
