    Gary, I am so thankful for the honor of knowing you. You made a positive impact on so many lives including my own. Thank you for your service to this country and the love you provided to your family. You will never be forgotten. This isn’t a “goodbye” but rather a “see you later”. Looking forward to seeing you again one day. Until then I can stand with confidence knowing that you are home in the the presence of God.
