    My sympathies to Gilbert’s family! I really enjoyed chatting with him at Fox Point Manor – ESPECIALLY about the Cubs! He was always pleasant when I greeted him & chatted and I was so surprised when he took the sudden turn for the worse. I know he is happy in heaven with his wife & other family who preceded him! RIP Gilbert! So glad you got that World Series win for your Cubbies!!! And thanks to God – all the lost memories are back!!
