Yes, very sad indeed.  He was the George Harrison of the band.  Very quiet, in the background, and VERY under-appreciated.  The band wasn't the same without him, and personally, I don't think any of the others' works (in the band or otherwise) sounded anything Floydish without him.

He will be missed greatly by me.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

Not to lessen the contributions of Nick Mason or Syd Barrett, but I've always felt that the three essential ingredients that made Pink Floyd were Gilmour's guitar, Waters' lyrics, and Wright's keyboards.  It's a shame Gilmour and Waters couldn't get along well enough for one last tour... and now it's too late.

No full on reunion.  Tis a sad day.

He was an essential part of their sound.
