I am so sorry to hear of Gilbert’s passing. He was a great man!! I have so many awesome memories of him and all of you in Carroll’s crossing. Watching him do his taxidermy, learning from his carpentry skills, getting mad at us for Polka-dot-power(eh Owen) and his powerful messages from behind the pulpit when he would fill in for our preacher at Carroll’s Baptist.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all in the coming days.
Jack
