Lisa, I am so sad to learn of Gary's passing. He was a gentle soul. I will forever cherish the memories I have of him. He was one of a kind. His love for you Lisa is undoubtly. He always would take the time to tell me about Tiara and how special she was to you guys. I am sure he is looking down on you guys and will continue, while breathing freely now. My heartfelt condolences with love, Kolynn (Smith's Pharmacy aka "the blond girl" "my friend")
