    Lisa, I am sorry we never got to meet. I am one of the Nieces, born to his oldest Brother Melvin. I did not know I was a Gable until about 6-7 years ago. Uncle Larry and I talked about the Family and he sent me info on all. I missed so much. Your Dad was amazing, and will be missed by many. I am Barb Lindsay’s Sister and live in NY. She will give you my info if you ever want to chat. I am so sorry for all of our loss. Jan Green
