Condolence: Oh, dear Peggy and family. We are so shocked and saddened to hear of Gary's death. He will be missed by so many people and had such a positive impact with all of his volunteering. He always had a smile for me; now he is rejoicing with the Savior who he believed in and served,as a 'good and faithful servant'. May God give you His peace and the blessing of so many happy memories.

Condolence: Gary played bridge with the Westerville Senior Center bridge group that meets Wednesdays and Fridays. He was always a delight and fun to play with. He was with us the last week of May. We cannot believe we won't see his smiling face across a bridge table. He will be sorely missed.

Condolence From: George/Nancy White, De Soto, Kansas
Condolence: It was with great sadness when we learned of the loss of our dear friend of 47 years. Friendships normally don't last that long, especially when we live so far apart. But when friendships are strong they last. We will miss our many visits and trips we took together. I know we don't have to remind Peggy, but George considered that Gary was the brother he never had. He will be missed, but his memories will be with us always.

Condolence From: Bruce Brownlee, Johns Island, SC
Condolence: Truly a good man of character and love for his family.

It was our lucky day when we moved in as your next door neighbors in Athens back in 1971. I am missing working together at Krogers while attending classes at Ohio University. Diane and I still talk about visit to Penny Lane in Youngstown, long ago.

God's peace be with you and your wonderful family.

Vivat Jesus!
