Rest in Peace, my beloved Mr G.  I smile every time I remember how you used to say "Sell It!" when you were pushing me to put a little more gusto in a song and I am still singing.  You were such a wonderful teacher and human being and gave so many young people a love of music.  What a long and productive live you lived.
