"Gary; We are nearing the 3rd yr since you passed. We all miss you so much. I miss talking to you about all the important or nonimprotant things. I have questions to ask; like how do I fix my mailbox? and how do I recover my chairs? You did those things for me, whenever I asked and/or needed help. Its hard that you are not here to ask anymore. I was at the beach this past weekend and thought of you and how you loved to play in the water! I could go on but today my heart breaks from missing you. Love you brother!"

"two years.. and i still don't know what to write.. i know what i feel, but i can't find the words.. forgive me, i guess i'm not good at this.. you were always fun to be around, more than fun really.. you just made every time a special time.. there aren't many people on the planet like that.. the spectrum of people who'se lives you made more enjoyable - even for a little while - is both broad and long.. i look at the thank you letter you sent me - even in your difficult position you were thinking of others - every time i set at my desk.. it saddens me, but also reminds me of how very special you were.. i wish i had done more with you.. i wish i had done more for you.. clearly there were ways i could have been of value.. i didn't even help my own brother.. please forgive me.. make sure you save a big table up there Gar, we'll be coming soon enough.. and you know we won't be quiet, as usual.. to the happy times, my friend, my brother.. or, as so aptly fits" "good times, good times"."

"Gary: Thinking of you today, your birthday. As Colleen said, the day you were introduced to us all. I remember looking at the window at salem hospital while mom pointed to the incubator, you were in, after a difficult birth. That joy lasted your whole life. I always enjoyed the times we had from long car rides traveling to you coming to visit and fixing things around the house. I think of you daily and the many things I wish I could say to you! Here's to you, my wonderful brother, may you rest in God's Peace."

"Gary I am not sure what to say. We were the same age. I remember so many wonderful things about you. I remember that I looked up to you. I still do. I think what you did in your life is amazing. You were my comforter when I moved to Topsfield...you took me to the mall and we played video games. Before then I felt so alone but you made me feel loved, that was your gift. I love you Gary."

"I always considered Gary, Chris and Marc as the three muskateers.  It was great to watch the three of them in the Murphy pool wrestling.  Gary, what I do know about you is your kindness was always present; no matter what mood. You often reminded me of Grampy because you always made the best of things and put a positive spin on most everything.  You will always be in my heart and prayers."
