    Thank You all for the heartfelt sympathy and especially your prayers, some men leave their mark on the world by the way they live , they can make a difference and touch many, I knew he was that man and I am so proud to have been Gary’s wife because he was one of these men. We feel such sorrow and loss that will always be with us, we were given a gift by Gary’s love. Time gives us the healing power of his memory.
