I was so sorry to hear about Gary's passing. One night when my Mom was sick he came to her house and talked to me for a long time. It was nice to catch up after so many years. His advice, "buy stocks". I always loved all 4 of you boys. Sorry I couldn't make Gary's funeral. RIP Gary. Sympathy to all his family.
