From: City of Biloxi 4/19/17 GCN
When it came time to deliver a formal eulogy Tuesday for "Danny" Guice, Mayor Andrew "FoFo" Gilich turned to the words of the three-term Biloxi mayor himself.
"Let me close with his message, in Danny's own words, which is our message today," Gilich said, reading from a Guice letter in the front cover of the book:
"'The people of our city invite you to be part of metropolitan Biloxi's bright future. Culturally unique, historical in atmosphere, but progressive in spirit. THIS IS BILOXI. Make it your city, too. Daniel D. Guice Mayor. '"
Added Gilich: "On behalf of Biloxi, thank you, Danny Guice."
