    I am lost for words… J’ai beaucoup aimé cet homme et il me l’a bien rendu. Il n’était pas facile d’apprivoiser cet homme de principes, nous avons d’abord été voisins avant de devenir amis. Same goes for Linda, and all the family. Rest in peace Gary, you were loved.

      Thanks so much for your thoughts they’re appreciated it was sure unexpected and I still can’t believe he’s gone. We spent 60 fabulous years together and they seemed to past way too fast.

    Thanks for letting me know. I’ve been praying and thinking of you ever since you called. I truly know how you are feeling and will always keep you close in heart and mind. Please pass my sympathies on to the rest of the family. I never knew that Gary liked sailing. That was a great picture of him. You have been away too long. I’ll be in touch soon. Much love and hugs
