Gil was one of the really good guys. I met him a year after I moved to Minnesota and called about Twins season tickets. I bought them from him in 1979 and still have them today. Gil knew how to take care of his customers. He loved people and loved to talk about baseball. We stayed in touch until just a few years ago and I always appreciated our friendship.
