Dear Gerry, Nancy, Karen and Trisha, My deepest heartfelt condolences for your loss of dear Gary. I’m in shock and feel his absence all the way here in California. I am at a loss for words. Gary was such a good son, husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was smart and funny, ingenious and such a hard worker as well. Thank you Gary for being irreplaceable in our hearts. We were blessed to know you and better for it. Much love, prayers and hugs, Brenda
