Nothing but the most wonderful of memories of Joan and Gary! I was fortunate to have worked with you both for two years. The warmth and love that you both shared for each other , your children and grandchildren was truly an inspiration to us all! The fondest memory that I will have of Gary is the last video call that we did, just the three of us. You both were sitting next to each other, holding each other's hands as we were speaking about work, children and life:):) Not once did either of you let go. It was such a tender moment that I will carry with me forever. Know that the Lord has taken his child Gary up to his kingdom. Gary is smiling down on us all. We will be with Gary again in the light, free of any pain. I will be sending prayers of comfort and faith to you Joan and your family. The love that you both shared for so many years endures! Be at peace.
