Karen - I am sorry for your loss. Losing your Dad is so hard (I thought mine was invincible). May you have peace and rest as you heal.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Linda,Kristy, Karen and family I am deeply sorry for your loss , I am sending you all my love,thoughts and prayers. I have so many memories of Gary its hard to choose . I can see Gary hanging on to the pole like gymnast showing off his mad skills and muscles. As a little girl I was in awe. As an adult he took me to have Maryland crab legs and beer. He never lost his Boston accent...and that was impressive. My favorite memory is dancing with him at my wedding. I hold these memories close to my heart and will forever remember him hanging off the pole. Love Yackey
