    Dear Albert and Phylis, Mark and Randy;
    My deepest sympathy to you all. Gary was a very unique individual who was one of my best friends! I will miss him so much and am glad that I have so many good times and pictures to remember him by. I know it has been 20 years since I last saw him but I finally spoke with him after tracking him down and we got to catch up. I am sad that I will never get to see him on earth again! My prayers are with you all.
