Betty and family: I've only lived here a couple of years, but I feel I've known you much longer than that! I will miss the bantering back and forth with Garry and his bear hugs as he said "Thanks, for taking such good care of Mom!". He was always the first one to offer his help and helped me out with many outside jobs. Garry's going to missed without a doubt. Most of all, I am going to miss, whenever I would see him I would say "Hey Garry!"; his response would be "Hey little lady". Thoughts and prayers to all of you.

We would like to express our condolences to Garry's family. We will certainly miss chatting with Garry over coffee at the Double Clutch. We mentioned many times how Garry's football pool made watching the games so much more fun. We appreciate that we could call him a friend.

Dear Garry,
You carried the light of Jesus all through your life. Here is a candle to continue the “Light” for years to come. You were certainly “Special” too many of us that learned how to be “Bold” in Jesus. I have over 8 years of memories that I will never forget you or what you believed in and shared with everyone! I will miss you and our moments together, but you will never be forgotten.
Love Always
B Joy
