Looking back over the years of knowing Gian, I was trying to think of the most gratifying
times. There were so many.... like meeting and becoming good friends with him and his
brother Gil. My brother Morty and I had great times on our trips to Maine, to Montana,
upstate New York and many other places, and finding great restaurants.
I thought of the good old Moosehead Belle (MB) and how well Gian caught fish with it,
so I decided to tie a special MB in full dress for a memorial.
Rest in peace my dear friend.
