  1. Tom&Barbara Harrison :

    Jessica & Lisa, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families at this time. Gary was a wonderful person and we were blessed to have him in our lives. He had a heart the size of the prairies and a truly great sense of humour. He had faith and vision and the brother I knew was an explorer and the illness cut short his plans. He is gone too soon. We will miss him.
