The last few days since Gill Clopton’s passing, I have been trying to sort out and articulate who he was, what he was to me as a friend, how he made the world a better place and what his legacy is.

I often told Gill he was much better with the written word than me. I usually express myself through visual art or with a spoken word, but in this case, I’ll give writing down my thoughts a try; to wit: I have known Gill Clopton pretty much my whole life.
