A neighbor down the road, who you know will be there if you need them, is the best kind of neighbor you can have. We always knew that about Gary and he and his boys always knew that Ms Linda could take care of any problems they had with the DNR. That's the kind of neighbor I am proud to call friend. His kooky sense of humor will always remain with me because I could never tell if he was serious or kidding me.
Kennerly Road will miss Gary Wessinger but I know that God has already put him to work building something. Rest in peace my neighbor down the road.
