MaeJae and myself Rick live beside Gary. We have been neighbors for about three years now. We have sat with Gary and visited by the pool and along the fence between our houses as Gary's dog Survivor and ours ran along the fence barking and playing with each other, quite a commotion. I have been aware of Gary's health problems and visited and encouraged him and have offered prayers for him. In a visit about a month ago Gary shared that he was happier now than he had been for a long time. I will miss waiving at him and visiting. MaeJae and I pray that each family member and friend will find comfort in the good memories of Gary. Rick Storrs

Holiday memories of daddy stealing Gary’s deviled egg without fail! He was so gullible! Golf vacations to beautiful courses. A pool party with Shea and all the cousins having a blast there in Nashville with the entire family. Gary singing and laughing at the “pottidge in a pear tree”. Gary, master of the grill! Black Friday with tales of all the brother-in-laws mischevious deeds. Shea looking at her mom and dad as a toddler with those big, round and beautiful eyes saying “NNNO” and Gary just laughing at her stubbornness. Years of memories, may he Rest In Peace.
