Was thinking of you and remembering that day when you got a call to the old ladies house where the kids took all her rose bushes and made a mess. She was so upset since that garden was her babies. You went to the local nursery, using your own money bought some replacements and planted them to surprise her. That was how you rolled!! I see your name on the film credits when you worked for Hollywood. I cannot ever forget that phone call while on maternity leave that you had been taken from us, they didn't want me to hear it on the news. I think of you a lot Gary and tell all my criminal justice students in North Carolina about our great department and you! Love you!
