Gary,

After reading all the other comments, the only thing I can think to add is:

Thank you for pushing me to come back to the team, I still carry the SWAT coin you gave me to help persuade me back. Your ambition was only second to your sense of humor. Thanks for consistently making us laugh when we needed to. And most of all, thanks for being there during college and work. You are sorely missed brother.

Godspeed.
