I trust you will recall that I interviewed both you and your husband, Gil, in the late July, 2009, when I had the wonderful opportunity to visit your community and meet so many very special people.
Because I had totally replayed your interview again,very recently, for the third time, and had only today completed my own written reflection of what specifically you stated during the over-an-hour interview you both had afforded me, reflecting upon your very lucid memories. You and Gil had remarakable savvy and much to say, with outstanding evidence of very fine memories. Strangely enough I decided to look you both up, on-line, and shockingly,found that Gil had passed away, exactly one month ago, today.
I am so very sorry for your loss. Gil was not only very tall, especially for one in his 90's, but he was in my eyes, a giant of a man.He was everything all of us want a parentand/or grandparent to be and I am certain he was also a most devoted and loving husband.
Please accept my most sincere condolences on your terrible loss. I wish that I could have shared with him the finished product of my written efforts.
With sincere sympathy,
