gary was an amazing son, uncle, brother, partner, and friend. although keeping in touch was difficult, i knew i could always count on you even when everyone else turned their backs on me (and my mom). you were always sure that i knew that whatever was going on in my life, you still loved me, period. you truly were the best uncle i couldve asked for. i deeply wish that i couldve seen you before your passing but i know that youre with grandma and grandpa now. after grandpa’s funeral service i remember you were crying and i was the only one who made you smile on the sad day. all you kept telling me was that you wouldnt wait to see them again when god was ready for you, too. even though things... are difficult here on earth without you, i know for a fact youre in a better place with good people. i just hope you know that you always were, and will always be my uncle.Read more
