DeLaine and Donna Lea, just wanted to express my sorrow for the loss of this sweet, sweet man. I did not know him well but he clearly loved the Lord and the assurance he is with the Lord for eternity without pain or illness brings joy and peace. May you find comfort in the coming day thru our Lord and Savior. Your sister in Christ, Nancy Kronfeldt

I am so saddened to learn of Garry's passing. He was such a kind, caring, dear person. His quilting talents were remarkable and he shared his quilts with others to enrich their lives and keep them warm. His presence will be sorely missed, but it is comforting to know that he is without pain and his soul is in the arms of loved ones.
