I am so sorry for your loss. Gary was a wonderful husband. Everytime I needed help with something he was right there and the whole time he was working he was talking about you, Tippy. He not only loved you, but was so proud of you and your accomplishments. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

I cherish the last time we saw one another, the stories and laughs we shared about our families while eating at Maria's Restaurant. You will be dearly missed and may you find peace with the Lord and your Mother and Father until we meet again. I love you... your youngest cousin, Judy xoxo

Went to school with all of Gary's children. Have not seen any of you in a long time but I did talk to your dad a lot. He would talk about you guys. Sorry for your loss.
