Gary will always be my "son". He was such a talented artist, potter, and decorator. We use to tease him about being the Martha Stewart of our family. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. As well, he was always so grateful for anything you gave him. We all thought of Gary as family and we will all miss him so much. We love you Mari and Summer. Jay and Sandy
