Not sure what to say?

Gary was the best! Funny all the time, serious when needed. He was fun to be around. I loved bowling with him. Debbie and I think of him often. He's 1 of the good guys the world needs more of. RIP my friend.

You were one of the very best! No matter what you were going through, you always had a smile on your face. I always loved listening to you talk about your family. Your face would light up whenever you spoke of Chris or the girls. How proud you were of all of them! Oh how I've missed all those long conversations in the Depot smoke tent.

Thank you for being my rock, always supporting me, always guiding me, always making me laugh, always loving me and for always just being yourself. I love you daddy.

I knew we would become friends the first time we met. That smile, southern drawl and laid back disposition made you easy to talk to. Even though we had lost touch for some years, we re-connected thanks to that new fangled thing called a computer. Whether our conversations were on the telephone or the computer, I enjoyed them all and smiled through many. When I visited you and Chris in Florida, I must say the one thing I liked better than upsetting your lovely wife was the ten minute tour of...
