Gary, was one of my best friends in high school. We were on the High School Yearbook staff together, and I remember working with him in the darkroom developing photos he took (before digital photos folks). He was an astute artist, and I learned a lot from hm. Still to this day, I use what I learned from Gary, on developing photos, in a different field. I was saddened to hear of his leaving us way too soon, but still cherish, the times I had with him. And always, will.
