Dear Roz, I heard the terribly sad news about Gary this morning. Although it's been a long time since Michael and I spent our happiest thanksgiving with you (we had just found out we were pregnant), you have always been a part of that wonderful, joy filled memory for us. My heart goes out to you and your daughters as words cannot express my feelings of sadness for you. Jackie Collins

Roz-
The shock of learning about Gary has left me sad all weekend--no comparison with what you and the family must feel. I am thinking of you now. Though our contact was limited to annual messages since Gary and I were friends at Columbia (except for the lunch my wife Marian and I had with you and Gary 3 years ago), I felt much closer to him. I think that is because of the kind of person he is (I can't yet say "was"): without a doubt, one of the kindest, most pleasant persons I have ever known. I will not forget him. Bless you all.

Roz, Lauren, and Rachel : Gary was a pragmatic intellectual with wide interests, many friends and is already sadly missed. He competed fairly and was above all, principled-a feature sorely lacking these days. Your family will now go on in the halo of his memory and good deeds.

The World will never be the same again with the sudden loss of such a kind, warm, generous and intelligent man. I was truly blessed to have Gary in my life as my friend and mentor and am so thankful for all the things he taught me about work, life and what's most important, family. My deepest condolences and love and prayers to dear Roz, Rachel and Lauren. Gary - may you find even fancier cars and even better gadgets in Heaven. Rest in peace my friend.
