Gary you'll be missed by many of your former work mates at Baldwin school. I remember you as a hard worker and one that loved your wife dearly. Thanks for always keeping busy and working hard for me. Sorry you were an Oakland Raider fan. What a loser in picking NFL teams but a winner overall in my book Gary. You'll be missed.
