I remember Gary and Larry from high school, both of which was always very polite. Gary was a great person, so very sweet. You will be sadly missed. Prayers for your family.

Dear Gary, my best friend,

When we first met during that snowstorm over 30 years ago, you said I was an angel sent to you on a snowflake.... You, my friend, were the angel, and everyone who came in contact with you I am sure felt the same. You had a heart of gold, not only to your friends and family, but your pets as well, even stray animals. You have been way more than a friend to me.... You never judged and always saw two sides to everything and didn’t hesitate to call me out if I was wrong, but did it in a loving and caring way.

To say that you will be missed is an understatement, and quite frankly, I don’t know what I am going to do without you.

Mike said to me recently that we “lost a star”, he was right, we did, but God has gained an angel.

I love you Gary.

I am so sorry to read o Gary's passing. Most of you will not know me , but Thelma was my 2nd cousin on her dad's, Uncle Irvin Jones, Irvin, my dad, was Thomas Brierly's uncle. We have lost contact with this part of the family since mom and dad have passed away. I would love to know where you live and get to know you. Our prayers are with the family. God bless all of you.
