Gayle,"Little" Gary,Kim and family:

It is sad for all that know him that "Big" Gary finished his work here. But it is wonderful for Gary that he is also finished with sickness and pain and that he is beginning to receive his eternal rewards.

Health problems did not allow me to attend the service celebrating a life well lived. However, I spent a long time looking at the photo gallery on my computer. It brought many good memories to mind.

Who hasn't been helped by Gary...welding broken things...fixing air conditioners..even at odd hours? But when you have a squirrel IN YOUR HOUSE who are you gonna call? Gary, of course. We laughed so hard when his scheme worked and that squirrel ran out of the house at top speed!

Our prayer is that during times of sorrow, God will bring happy memories to mind.

Precious Gayle & Fisher Family,
Please know that we are holding you close to our hearts and lifting you in devoted prayer during this time of grief. We love you all so dearly and although we rejoice that Gary is now out of pain and walking God's Streets of Gold; selfishly, we will miss him on holidays and at ballgames when we'd always get together. We are asking God to blanket you with peace and acceptance, comfort you with precious memories and speed healing to your broken hearts. We love you all.
Jen, Bart, Bo, Jake, and Bryn
