Barb and Raeanne i am so sorry to hear of Gary passing, i know how hard he fought and how he dug deep in his spirit to keep going. Gary was one of my oldest, closest and dearest friends. he was one of my first friends i made when i was 14. we meet at school and that friendship lasted 45 years. Gary and i both shared English parents and laughed about that all the time, i spent a number of years living with Gary, and we shared the same love for the same music and had went out many times to catch bands and Gary always came out when he could to see my band..I will endlessly miss Gary and Gary’s humor, wit and authenticity, i feel such loss as i will never be able to replace those times together and what he gave me..as a close and dear friend.
