Becky we will miss Gary very much here at ESARC. Everybody loved Gary and his smile. Unfortunately I will be out of state so will not make it to funeral but you will be very much in my thoughts. It was a tough 2 days here at workshop when we found out. We all shared our favorite memories of Gary- singing Christmas songs in July, his love of IU (he was so proud of the IU face mask I got him) and his baseball hats. Some times he surprised us when he didn't wear a baseball hat, nobody recognized him at first. If you ever need anything just call the workshop- Gary will not be forgotten.

Cousin, I remember when you came to live with us while your mother was having health issues. We were told that you couldn't do most things but we got you to play and act with us just like any other kid your age. I am happy see that you went on to have a happy life even if it was much too short. Everyone will miss you.

Dearest Gary and family, I was a child growing up in a very large family. Gary you are a memory I will always treasure and remember with love. Many a day in my youth that our family and yours were together in your basement playing. I cherish those years. Rest in Heaven with your family and ours. Sorry for your lost family, heaven's gain.
With all my love cousin Deedee
