    Mr. Gip was a legend. I always stopped by his place if I was anywhere close to Bessemer on a Saturday night. The last time I was there was one of the last times he was there, and he was gracious and humble to the end. He will be truly missed and with him came the end of an era in Alabama. Good to see a post from you old friend!
