Love you Vicky
I have no words
Love you, miss Gary
For all our differences we always managed to leave the past in the past and reconnect. I will always cherish and remember fondly our lives together and all the years thereafter. Our children are the best parts of us nothing can compare. I see you in both of them in so many ways and it makes me smile and know that we are all better for having you in our lives. Until we meet again know that I will always love you and miss you.
Thoughts and prayers with everyone in the family. Gary was such a character and will forever be in everyone’s heart.
Grandpa Gary! You are such a wonderful man, I am so very glad to be a part of your family. We will have your memory live on forever and you will never be forgotten. I am so thankful I had you in my life for all of these years and that my kids will remember you and I will remind "Izzy" that you actually knew her name was Abby and was just playing around like you do! Every single time I was around you I would smile and laugh and smh, you are one hilarious person Grandpa Gary! I will miss the yearly phone calls from you to wish me a Happy Birthday, thank you for always remembering me! I love you so much and I cannot wait to see you again! Love you! -Michelle
