I met Gary when I was in the 5th grade,he taught me how to ride a horse,after riding at his barn for 5 years he got me my very first horse Lakota. He was a strong brave man and has beautiful children. I hope all is well with his family and he will ALWAYS be in my thoughts and prayers. I have been searching for him for a few years now and am just now finding out about his death. Very saddening.
He has a special place in my heart.

I rode for/with Mr. Gary at Twin Branch, and we kept in touch after he moved. I have so many memories of him, they won't fit in this little box. He'll always remain in my thoughts. My sincerest condolences and prayers to all his family and friends.
