Linda/Bryan/Robby and family,
So sorry for you loss. Words cannot express the impression Gary made on my life growing up practically living at your house. I cant think of many times (if any) he wasn't at every ball game even as we were young men playing a women's sport. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
