  1. Gipp was a special neighbor. When Guido and I moved to Burgundy Court in 2001, We regarded Gipp as the Sheriff of The neighborhood. He had a red truck and . every morning, he would drive the Cul de Sac. His yard was full of “Yard Art” that intrigued us from the moment we moved in. We would visit Gipp to find out what new “piece ” he was working on.
    Gipp was funny ( dry wit), kind, and we will dearly miss him.

    We are so fortunate that we knew him.

    Charlotte and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you….

    Pamela & Guido

  2. My condolences to your family, may our Heavenly Father Jehovah give your family the strength needed during this time of grief. “For he is near to those broken at heart”. PS 34:18.
