Roxanne F. Anderson: My condolences... he was AWESOME

I am truly sorry to read of his passing! My Father had one of his pieces and he passed away on January 23rd! I was actually able to get the piece away from his wife. I don't know if it's a print, or a sketch, but I have wonderful memories of it being in my childhood home. It's titled "CAFE DE LA PAIX" (1954) and I've wanted it so bad!!! I will hang it with pride and wonderful memories of my Daddy. My prayers and thoughts to your family. Roxanne

Cleveland Steve Ivey: Once met - Never forgotten

i met Gideon some years back working with my father doing drywall work Gideon. I never did forget him and his kindness toward my father and me. Though I never saw him again after the work was completed I told my wife about him and he visited her school in moultrie, georgia to talk to her students. He was very honest and sincere. I feel i will never forget him. May God bless the Gideon Family
