I am remiss in missing your anniversary in heaven. Gary you were a sweet guy and always knew how to treat people with respect. You were a great guy to work with and I still remember getting the call at home so I wouldn’t hear about you on the news. Your smile and mustache will always be remembered. Till we meet again....
