I just cannot express my feelings of absolute loss, regarding the tragic loss of Mr. AT Gillahan. He will always be remembered by me, as a perfect gentleman. Fair, resolute, calm, and with an irresistible and desired dry sense of humor! I'll never forget the way he smiled whenever someone eventually caught on to, and just HAD TO agree with, his perspective! May the good Lord ensure this fine man rests in peace, for it is a fact, he has truly earned his place amongst all Angels.
