    I miss you so much already. I don’t know How I’m ever going to get past you not being here. It hurts so bad. Like no other pain you could ever experience. I have to get it together for your brother. I love you so so much! Mom

    Gary was my kids counselor at camp. My kids loved him and he loved them like they were his own. Gary always had a smile on his face, no matter what. He just set the tone for the day and I always admired that. To say he will be missed is an understatement. I truly am so sorry and saddened by his loss. May all that knew him keep his memory alive.

    My condolences to the family.
    I did not know Gary personally but Rob used to tell me that i reminded him of his brother.
    Seeing his many accomplishments i now know what an honor that was to be compared to him.
