I was so sad to hear about Gary. My siblings and I always loved to hop in the car and go visit Aunt Lorene and all the cousins over in Willard when we were little kids. I remember all the yummy food and the games we'd play outside. Julie, hugs and prayers to you and the family.

I have not seen Gary for years, but seeing his picture brought back memories of wonderful, fun days when he sang in St. Francis Xavier choir. Choir practice was always interesting with the guys in the back row. And the choir was good at singing, too. I extend my sympathy to all of his family. That smile will be missed for sure.
