I am so very sorry for our loss. I got to know Gary when I would take his mother and mine out to celebrate his mother's birthday and enjoyed the visits we would have when I brought her back home. I got to know him better when he was taking care of his mother in the last stage of her life. I thought he was such a caring son, and Linda, you were a caring person too. Our family has been blessed by the presence of you both. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this very difficult time. Heaven has gained another angel.

Dear Family:Gary, Billy, Hayden will be remembered every single day. He remodeled my main bathroom along with his sidekick, Don! Each were special in their own right, put them together and laughter was such to be heard. Im so sorry for all of us, especially for Linda, Lisa, Gin and all of the family. To be sure, im guessing Don said these 5 words, “What took you so long? Love and prayers continue.
