    Our thoughts and prayers are with the Keam family at this time of their great loss.
    Gil was a great person and always spoke with warm regard about his family, and I know that he will be missed by all.
    I will always remember Gil’s desire for a good feed of Chinese food although in later years, because he was conscious of his health, he refrained from doing it as often as we did in the good old days.
    My deepest regards to the family.

    Wayne and Maxine
