I don't even want to wake up tomorrow to face another Valentines day , remembering that on our last valentine's day, we had to make the most horrible decision we ever had to make. But we really thought God was going to bring you through this one more time. Little did we know it would not only be our last valentine's day, but also the last day we really had to talk, before your surgery the next day. . After you came through your surgery, with your joking as usual, you coded, and we never  did get another change to hold one another.  Am I bitter??? Yes I am, and probably always will be. I will never stop loving you Gary Never"

"A light on a hill. We shared a classroom almost 20 years ago and I will never forget how funny, caring, musically talented, and real you were. Never seen you in any mood but smiling and happy. I remember how proud you were of that brand new granddaughter, wow. I also remember how deeply you loved Bev. As a young woman, I couldn't understand that kind of love. Now I'm grown-up a little and I kind of know what you were talking about. I think about that when I share small moments with my husband and it makes me think of how hard it must be for Bev, I cannot imagine. The peace we all feel for your graduation to glory only comes from the same faith you shared while you were here. Thank you, Gary."

"Gary, Having you as my friend
I learned that there are those,
few who believe a friend
is cherished, not mocked or set aside
for any reason.

Having you as my friend
has lifted my life, no one could ask for a better friend,you was a very caring person i will never forget you and i will always remember that night i needed a ride home and could not get a hold of anyone, i call you  and you was there in 5 mins, You never be forgotten dear friend.
