My father and myself were students of Mr. Thorson. I remember my first day in his class when he asked me about my father, and I replied, very nerously, who he was. He just laughed and said that he couldn't wait for parent/teacher confrences. From our family to yours we send our deepest sympathy.

Our heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to Gary's family at this difficult time. May he rest in peace!
