Judy, what a shock to learn of Gary's death. I remember you both so well, though we haven't been in touch for years -- you so lively and full of love for your family, Gary so calm and steady. I will hold you all in the light as you mourn.

I am so devastated to hear the sad news. I will never forget the rides home to Brooklyn from Brandeis in Paul's car, and the fun trips we had later on visiting each other when the kids were small. His memory will always be with you.
