There are no words to comfort during this time nor words to comfort later. But Aunt Joann, Scott, Jeff - you have an amazing family both near and far whom are with you, if only in thoughts and prayers.

We love yall and haven't stopped thinking of yall during this time.

Uncle Gary, I love you.

Sincerely, your eldest niece Carolyn (Kris) Griffin (aka Brownie Butt aka Little Carolyn aka Toots) and family.

Joann and family, I am so sorry for the loss of Gary or as I knew him Batman. I feel blessed to have known him and to have gotten to have lunch with Batman almost every week. He was a good man and friend. We will surely miss him. May God bless your family.
