Mary, Kim, Logan & Jessica,
Please know our hearts are broken too! We are here if you need us.
There is no doubt that Gary will be missed by the whole Stewart family. The family reunion where Gary was a dedicated volleyball player comes to mind. Who but Gary would continue playing after having stitches (which were administered on the kitchen floor) from a barb wire laceration. Love and prayers, Neal and Karen Bright
