We were so saddened to hear of Gary's death. We were not aware of his fight for life, neither his Celebration of Life. So sorry we could not be there to share and give you the support and love. Our deepest sympathy to you and your family. Memories of his love will help your broken hearts. Love Claire and Bunky
