    Lori and Brett, Very tough day on my birthday as we say goodbye to a great guy . Our relationship wasn’t always smooth but we always found to love each other after our arguments ( ball busting) . Didn’t realize how sick Gilly was until near the end as we were texting each other. Wrights Corners bocce will never be the same without Gilly He always did the draw brought the food was very entertaining chirping during the games etc . We went to Rome together had private conversations. He loved his brothers Wife and Son and his extended family’s. RIP Gilly Love Andrew and Paula Sweeney
