    Our deepest condolences, Nancy and Gil. Nancy, my best way of knowing your dad is through your stories about him. What sticks in my mind the most is how he arranged to have live music brought in for your mom while she was in the nursing home a year or so ago. Your father showed his never ending love for your mom by going to extravagant lengths to arrange a ‘date night’ and help her remember the love that they shared. That is much more than a lifetime commitment. That is an example of love and marriage for us all to aspire to. May God Bless you and the whole family. May your shared stories carry you through this time of grief.
