So sorry to hear of Gary's passing. I went to school with Gary and when we were in grade school he use to chase me around the play ground. In high school he was one of my dance partners. Always considered him a good friend.

Ryan and family my heart goes out to you at this time. Your Dad was like a second dad to Matt and all your friends. Your home was the home away from home to many of them. Your dad was a very nice and friendly man, Your parents are reunited together for ever smiling down from heaven. God will comfort you and help ease your pain. Always remember you will all be together again some day. Karen Zeh (Peoria, AZ)
