    I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. We don’t get to visit as much now that FHC moved. I stopped over today to drop off packets for Judy like I usually do and you were not at your desk. If there is anything I can do let me know. Remember, you will always have all those wonderful memories of your Dad. I never met him but I remember you would often talk fondly of him. Keep in touch.

    Let us remember before God, Gil and all those who rejoice with us, but upon another shore and in a greater light, that multitude which no man can number, whose hope was in the Word made flesh, and with whom, in this Lord Jesus, we are forevermore one.

    Let us commend our brother Gil to the mercy God
    Our maker and redeemer
    Gil, our companion in faith and brother in Christ,
    We entrust you to God.

    Go forth from this world,
    In the love of the father who created you,
    In the mercy of Jesus Christ who died for you,
    In the power for the Holy Spirit, who strengthens you,

    At one with all the faithful, living and departed.
    May you rest in peace and rise in glory.
    Where grief and misery are banished
    And light and joy evermore abide.
