Rose, Jen and family, We are shocked and saddened to hear of your great loss. From what we remember from being around him, Gary was a fine husband, father and grandfather. My heart just aches for our precious grandson Liam, because he, his little sister and his cousins have lost such a wonderful, positive influence in their lives. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. Hopefully, you will read these verses when you find the time and they will bring you some comfort. John 11:23-26 ; Philippians 3:20-21 ; 1 Corinthians 15:20-23 ; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 ; 1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 ; John 14:1-4 ; Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
Our Love,
Donna & Tom Boyd
