Gary, you made such a difference in the life of many students and staff while working with us at Merrill College.Thank you for all your hard work and contributions. Although gone too soon, our only consolation is that you are now home with our Father, and I pray that He sends blessings and strength to your loving wife, daughters, sister, and other family members.

I went to check Gary's address for a holiday card and found his obit instead.
I'm one of the hundreds (thousands) of people he helped during his long career. He was a lovely man, gentle and kind and funny. I owe him. My sincere condolences to his family.
