    I am at a loss that I was unable to see you before you passed. I have many fond childhood memories with you Uncle Gary. You introduced me to many different kinds of music, namely, Prince. I remember sitting in the car with you listening to Prince (the unfiltered version lol) and you saying “don’t tell your mom” lol! You always gave me sage advice about friends and boyfriends. You were one of the “cool” uncles. It’s sad to me that our extended family has not been very close over the years. Hopefully we can change that. Sleep in peace dear uncle. I will never forget you. Love you, your niece, Kelly Marie.

      Your uncle Gary loved you & Angie very much. Whenever he & I would talk on the phone, he asked about you both.

    We read about your loss and want to express our sincere condolences to everyone that was a part of Garry’s life. May God give strength and his love to each of you always. In the difficult days and nights ahead may the many wonderful memories of his life give you comfort. Something we have personally found to be of great comfort are the thoughts expressed in the Bible at John 5:28 “all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out “. May God Jehovah comfort you during this sad time in your life.

      What a beautiful sentiment in memory of my dear brother. If truly feels that he died far too soon & was a shock to our entire family. Your reference to the scripture verse, John 5:28, brings comfort to my soul. We plan to have a very personal memorial service with his children in the near future. I will read all of the posts with them & this special scripture verse, while we are together. Thank you for taking time to comfort our family.
