I am so sorry to hear the news of Gary's passing. We will be praying for you and all your family during this difficult time. I know I haven't seen him in a while but he was a dear friend. I miss the time we all used to spend together.

Gary gave us our dog and named her Star. She ended up being the star of our family. We renamed her Snickers and she changed our lives and provided 13 years of special memories. For that I will always be grateful to you and Gary. Take care and God bless.
