Hello family, I am so very sorry for your loss! I will be praying for comfort and peace, and that the Lord will wrap his arms around you all. Gary was a wonderful man, and I had some good laughs and conversations with him over the past years. I visited him after his open-heart surgery at mission hospital and I was so glad I had that opportunity. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend his funeral. I will be working at that time. You all will be in my prayers. Sherry
