    We were so sorry to hear about Gary. I am glad he didn’t have to suffer any longer. Our prayers are with you all, Aunt Shirley, Steven and Randy and family. Mom and I were talking yesterday about how glad we were a few years ago to be able to visit with Uncle Don and Gary. Life is so hard sometimes.
    Much love,
    Brenda and John McArthur and family

    I was so saddened to hear about the passing of Gary. I have so many fond memories of Gary. He will be greatly missed by many. Every-time I would see Gary he would always say “so how’s Sherre doing” he always had a smile on his face and always gave a big hug. My prayers go out to my Nephew Colby, Shirley, Randy, Steven and all other family members.
    May God Bless you and your family during this difficult time.
    Love Sherre Johnson

    Shirley and family, so sorry to hear of Gary’s passing but happy for him to be released from his disease. I’m thinking 2020 has been a hard year for a lot of people in a lot of ways!
