My heart goes out to my aunt Linda, cousin Timmy, Gary’s wife Rachel and to the rest of the family and friends. I have the best memories of family reunions with Gary. He was a special soul and I will always remember him the way we were when we were kids. The great times and summer fun in Lompoc with the rest of our cousins. I pray that we can find peace in knowing that Gary had faced so many challenges and had endured much suffering in his short life and that suffering and struggle is no more. Always and forever young…
Rest in Peace Gary. I love you.
Your cousin,
