I am so saddened to learn of Gary's passing. I so enjoyed visiting with him. I had a deep fondness for him and I will deeply miss him. He used to love telling me about his military adventures as a young serviceman. He also loved telling me about all the different jobs he held. I swear there wasn't some type of job he had not tried. He was a real character and I know he really enjoyed my company. May the following verses bring you comfort in this time of your loss.
What must it be to step on shore and find it—HEAVEN;
To take hold a hand and find it—GOD’S HAND;
To breathe a new air and find it—CELESTIAL AIR;
To feel invigorated, and find it—IMMORTALITY;
To sail from the care and turmoil of earth
To one unbroken calm;
To land there and find it—GLORY.

“Although it is difficult to look beyond the sorrow.
May looking back in memory comfort you tomorrow”.
