    Bev and I have been fortunate to spend many vacation weeks with Debbie and Gill, in Calgary, London and Tuscon. Bev and I spent out honeymoon with Debbie and Gill and were married in their home.

    Gill was always kind, considerate, patient and generous. The comfort and happiness of Debbie and their friends and quests was always the most important thing in his day.

    I was fortunate to be in Tuscon with he and Debbie a few years ago when early one morning, in the kindest, most sincere way they both expressed to each other the depth of their love, care and support for each other. They did not know until today that I overheard this but it affected me deeply and I took it as a most beautiful gift from our creator that I did hear it.

    Gil and Debbie were to spend the last week of July this year with us golfing and we will miss him immensely.

    Gil, thank you for being my friend. Without hesitation I can say ” I am a better person for knowing you and I expect you to continue to participate in my life ….”

    Your Brother in law and in life

    Brian Garlough
