Heather Mills - Amputee Forum

Recommended Posts

I have received a few letters asking if I had heard from our friend Gil. I just called and talked to his son, and was told that Gil passed away from a very rapid lung cancer on July 3rd, this month.

His email address is; Gil@marshadavis.com

His son Brady says that this will only remain active for a short period of time.

Brady also went on to say that his Dad had asked him to let everyone know, but Brady was not sure how to get on the forum. I told him that I would do it for him. Brady said that Gil really enjoyed the comaradeship that the forum offered, and especially liked talking with everyone.

He will sincerely be missed.

There is a Yiddish term, mensch , which literally means a human being. It is a very high compliment, meaning someone who is decent, down-to-earth, kind, and real. My friend Gil Davis was a real mensch. I will miss him.

No trouble at all - but of course your welcome. Gil was my friend also - as he was with everyone else on this forum . He did make friends easily - or made it seem easy anyway :rolleyes: .

What sad, sad news. I was concerned because he wasn't posting or emailing. I PM'd him a few days ago to let him know I missed hearing from him and that I hoped all was well. He will be genuinely missed. Though, as Tammie said, he is with his beloved wife.

Thanks for letting us know, Jim.

I didn't know Gil, But I am sorry to hear about his passing. I did email him on Myspace like around the first week of July, and so I guess this is why he never answered. My thoughts, and prayers are with his family..

I thought I would remind everyone of this post that Gil posted on Dec 24 2006.

Get a grip on it! All of us on this forum are an inspiration to someone, simply because we're who we are and where we are. Those who chose to sit at home and never venture anything probably are not an inspiration to anyone.

I'm out in the public every day and have gotten more used to people coming up and telling me how "brave" I am. I don't really feel brave, but I quietly thank them and go on about my business.

He was not only an inspiration to everyone on this forum but truely to his family also and all those people he met which he mentioned in his post.
