Gary, you were a gentle, kind and caring man. Just by talking to someone, you made a friend. I was upset when told you were in the hospital. Then to find out about your passing. Total devastation. I know you are at peace, no pain. God will take care of you now. R.I.P. my friend. You will be missed by so many. I know I will see you on the other side. Missing your smile.
