To Nancy and the entire family I would like to express my deepest condolences to you and your family. That extends from my family as well. We all loved Gary and for me he was much more than a friend. He was like a brother to me and definitely was my mentor when it came to just about everything. I can't expain how much I loved him and how much I'll miss him. I'm just happy that God got us together and let me share the last 15 or so years with him. For me, The Guru will live forever. Even if only in memories he will always be with me. Ron Owens

Desr Nancy, Karen, Rich, Eric and Brian, We are thinking of you constantly and praying for the memorial service. I mailed out a card today Wednesday It took me over two hours to write it so I hope it will be of some comfort. Timothy & I love you all and hope to see you in a few weeks in Charlote. I thank God that Bob is able to come to you at this mind numbingly painful time. I'm praying for supernatural comfort and grace to carry you through these days. deepest love, Kathy & Timothy

Though I didn't know Gary very well, he was always full of snappy remarks and fun. I enjoyed trying to top some of his comments with some wit of my own only to be outdone most of the time. He was quick with his humor and kind in his regard for others. May his present journey take him to places of love and comfort. My sympathy to his family and friends and agree that he will be truly missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
