Not sure what to say?

Dearest Donna,
The four of us have been friends almost 40 years. How quickly those decades seem to have passed. Years filled with fun, laughter...and so many memories, so many changes. We grieve not for our men but for ourselves as we are now alone to ponder and reminisce the millions of pieces which made our lives what they were. There is no place to look and not see daily reminders of that life we shared in every way. I wish there were easy answers to "what now" but I know...

As a fellow member of Hernando Aero Modelers, I was fortunate to get to know Gary. We had many conversations about aircraft, both model, and full scale. His knowledge and expertise were always shared freely. Our last talk a few days ago was when he indicated he enjoyed his trip "Up North" and visit with his son. We will miss him at the field. Thanks, Gary.

I have known Gary and Donna only for the past three and a half years but found his to be a wonderful guy who always had only good things to say about others. Gary was always more than willing and enthusastic to help others with this many years of experience and knowledge in the sport of RC aircraft that he so loved. I know he is continuing with that love of that sport while he looks down upon us from heaven. He will be missed.aAf

RIP Gary!

I knew his mom and sisters they used to live down the street from my grandma Creamer on east McCracken street

May your wings stay polished as you soar through Heaven.
'Till our paths cross again, RIP
