I am so sorry for our loss of Gary. He was a very impressive man and someone I always looked up to. I always hoped to spend more time with Him and get to know about his life. I know he was very intelligent and talented and I was proud to call him Cousin. I pray for comfort for his family and friends. I especially ask for comfort for Jan who loved him and remained his steadfast friend to the end of Gary’s life. I love you all very much.
