This is him when I think he was probably 19? he was in the Cost Guards in this picture, if you look in the bottom left hand corner, that's Amanda when she was maybe a month old. This man meant to the world to me, in legal terms he was my step dad, but in my heart he was my dad, and 19 years ago today he walked through heaven gates and has been pain free ever sense, I miss him so badly, but I know he's waiting for me, and I will see him again, so I am some what sad, but mostly happy, happy to know he's no longerr suffering, so lets all rejoice and be glad.
Here's another picture I love, I have this one sitting on my mantle in my living room, this was taken maybe a year or year in half before being diagnosed with "C". Mom and him took a trip to Mexico and he caught 2 marlin fishes, and your only allowed one, so Mom had to claim the other, and she was no where on that boat. Gilbert LOVED to have fun, and he ALWAYS made things fun, this is how I remember him
Salute Gilbert~ Love, Annette
