I will always remember you as my uncle from when I was little and you guys would come visit us in California, then always around when we moved back to MI. Always smiling and cracking jokes. Even teasing my little sis with balloons on her hair and hiding her baby doll. Lol!
If you weren’t joking around or conversing, you were most definitely SLEEPING. Lol. My sleepy uncle who never failed to accomplish a nap, sitting in a room full of people, standing against the railing at the mall. You name it. All my memories are fond. I’m so happy that when I saw you recently, you were in great spirits and looked very handsome. I’m glad you are home with your savior and pain free. You will always be in our hearts!

Love, Alisha, Jacob and Londen.

You are now free from pain and worry.
Gary, I Love You So Much! 💞

Gary, you were always a very good big brother to me.
You gave me a ride on your motorcycle. That was really fun.
As your little brother, I was very proud and concerned when you departed for boot camp. I never saw Mom cry until you walked through the door to board the bus for boot camp. You came home a hero, and you shared your scary stories about your tour of duty.
I was very proud of you, although I never told you, when you went to college to study Metallurgy. I always thought you had a far more interesting career than I did. When I saw an old black & white photograph of you and our older brother Roger, both as altar boys kneeling in your black cassocks and white surplices, little did I know, years later, that the photo would be an inspiration for me to search for the traditional Church, where I met my wife. One day we all will know how many good things you have done, just by you being yourself. Mom and Dad know. God Bless. See You Again.

where there is no pain.

My dear brother Gary,
Thank you for your kind, caring soul,
the funny guy with explosive laugh,
imparting joy instantly,
turning the moment lighthearted.
Time goes so fast.
What if time is an illusion.
What if what we have are presents . . .
I look forward to the time
I share a walk with you
when time is history.
I love you, dear brother.

While my papa was in the hospital last month he requested that my nana bring him a framed picture they had of my dog so he could look at it. Not a picture of his wife, his kids, or his grandkids, he just needed a picture of his grand-dog because he is just that kind of goofball.
He kept it next to him everyday since then so he could be with his little buddy ♥️
When we couldn’t be there with him we would talk in the phone and we would laugh until he needed to rest. I wish he knew how much I miss his laugh already.

Gary's laughter and his fun loving sense of humor will be my most cherished memories of happy times together. I am glad to call you my brother.
The next time I see you Gar we will have perfect bodies, no pain, no sorrows, it will all be joy and peace with our loving
Savior, Jesus. I Love you...
