Gail and I spent many happy hours together, mostly on the golf course. He was a great friend and an incredibly kind person. One of my fondest memories was seeing him dancing at MVGC...he was incredibly light on his feet as he moved around the dance floor. We will cherish similar memories, and always remember his impish smile. We are in South Carolina now and won't be there in person for the services, but will certainly be there in spirit.
