  • Gary was a very special friend who I will miss and NEVER forget every time I have a piece of pie. He also shared his birthday with my wife, so another time we will remember our pie-eating friend. May the peace of Jesus fill the hearts of his family as you all seek it from our Lord. Maranatha!

  • Terri, I’m so sorry for your loss. I’ll be thinking of you.
