    Every year Mr. Gilmore would bring his envelope of tax forms and receipts to my job. Because I worked downtown he would always be right on time so I could run out and jump in his car. He always greeted me with the biggest smile which is the memory I will always cherish. My sincerest condolences and prayers to the Gilmore family. I love you all!
