I’m going to miss coming over to the smell of fresh brownies. You made sure to have a fresh batch of extra gooey brownies just for me, (I always shared them though). You always made sure I was doing okay and I was being taken care of and I’m going to miss you so much. Thank you for being my papaw. I’m sorry you didn’t get to meet Zella but I’m sure you’d love her too.

I remember going to Gary’s house with his son, my brother, Dusty Michael Dillman. We spent a good amount of time together. As we got older and grew apart things weren’t always perfect. I absolutely send my condolences, however it is very unfortunate, disrespectful and inconsiderate that Dusty was not mentioned in this memorial.
