Barb: Sorry we did attend Gary's service, as we don't take a newspaper anymore. I remember Gary & Arnold Parker when I worked for Bob Mullen. Gary & Arnold worked on the landing and cut the logs to length to go into the mill. They were Great men to work with. Our thought are with you and family at this time. We will miss Gary. I remember one of his saying was "Hell tacoot". I don't know what it meant.
