Gilbert was loved by everyone who had the honor of knowing him. Personally, I have great memories from oilfield days in Gillette and also such special memories of the love shown to my family when we were hurting so much when my Larry was so ill. Grateful for every moment we were all able to be together. Special experience that brightened our time spent at MD Anderson in Houston. Hold tight to all your memories and be sure to smile and even laugh out loud when you share your stories. Love to all of Gilbert's family.
