My dear friend Gil, (Filiberto Cano) died Tuesday. He was 83 years old. He was my mentor, older cousin-like friend..
He helped me with lots of suggestions and opinions during my divorce..
His pre-married life was a wild ride, but when I asked him if he would fool around on his wife or do anything stupid with her, he smiled deeply, showing his wonderful dimples, and told me"Hell NO.!! She would kick my a$$!"
Gil was 6'2, his wife is 5' tall.
He lived life to the fullest, but inside he was a softy,, caring for people like he was related closely to them all. He was a bragger, but blushed telling about it.
His wife is my friend too. explaining cultural things to me, helping me to understand things.
Gil had cancer of the liver.. died at home, is now free of his pain and can now start bragging in heaven about how he was so cool to go through the cancer and treatments.. I know he will blush and share those wonderful dimples to everybody up there.....
