Ann, Chip and family;
Nothing I can say or do will ever replace Garry. I remember how we tried to pick on him when we were teens. Not because we disliked him on any way, but because he loved it and we loved him.
I know it has got to be so difficult having lost William, Mack and now Garry. I am so grateful you have Your family at home to get you busy and the grandchildren.
Give thanks for your family and I think we agree we will all see each other again.
Garry earned his wings and he's making his way around heaven looking for everyone! God speed Garry.!
Chuck and I send our deepest sympathies to each of you.

Garry it is hard to believe you are gone. You were a Top Notch parts man and a true friend. I think the last time you and I were together, Dallas took a picture of you and me together and called us old school boys. May you rest after your long journey. You are missed.
