Dear Larry, Lea Ann and family,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Garry and Georgianna were wonderful people and especially dear to our hearts. Their friendship was a joy and comfort during our time at Broadway Christian Church. We are sad that life took us in different directions, but the friendship and love shared are never forgotten. May God comfort you during this time and give you peace.

Garry was a great role model for me when I was first starting out as a school counselor. He was the assistant principal at the middle school I was working in. He taught me a lot about fair and right discipline, respect for the students, and helping them learn self-responsibility. He was always kind but very firm and always fair. You all can be very proud of the man he was -- and the values he instilled in all those who knew him.

Garry lived with my family for three years, when we were in high school and we were great friends. He and Georgiana were very close with me and my wife Joann, when we lived in Pueblo. My deepest sympathy for your loss. Garry and your family are in my prayers.
