    Joan and Jamie,
    I have been reminiscing about Gary since I heard the sad news of his passing.
    What I remember most is that hearty laugh of his.
    As young girls, Clare and I really admired the “big cousins” when they would come home. We listened intently to the impressive stories of the outside world that Gary and the guys would describe while they discussed their work and travel. I looked forward to seeing the new gadgets that were brought along too, one time Gary had a camera (or was it binoculars) in a case that were examined and admired.
    I hope that your special memories give you comfort and strength in the coming days.
    Hugs to you both, Jean
