Carolyn, Al and I were so glad to meet you and Gary in Kentucky. Wish we could have spent more times together but it was and is a great memory albeit short. Our condolences to you and your family and be at peace knowing he is with his maker.

Oh wow, what a bunch of memories I have of Gary, and his sweet wife Carolyn, on the many years we were blessed to travel together with them to Michigan, Texas and Louisiana. So many laughs and memories to treasure for a lifetime. He holds a very special place in our hearts.
