I sang under Gideon many years ago with the symphonic choir in Saginaw, Michigan. He was an ultimate musician and had to have great patience with our amatuer status.

In the last few months I have been wondering if he were still alive and when I put his name in Google, up came a synopsis of his great career. I'm glad.

Irene, Jonathan and Joshua, you have my deepest sympathy and prayers.
