Garry provided me with invaluable advice when I once needed it. I will never forget how great his presence was at ARFCOM and how much I enjoyed reading his posts there. He made us all think harder and his wisdom will echo in our memories for the rest of our lives. May his family take comfort in knowing that they are not alone in missing him. RIP, Garry.

Dear Uncle Billy, Aunt Margie and Ribble Family,

I pray the love of God embraces you during your journey through grief and send you thoughts of comfort and love.

I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. Leo Buscaglia

Love, Karen Whatley
