a live worth living.
There is a line from a show that goes`to feel love is to see the face of God“ And I think in many ways Gary must have known what heaven on earth is…because

Although-it was from a distance…. i shared Gary life-always through some of you that loved him-telling stories… i knew about the battle Gary and his family had been in….I also had the amazing privledge and honor of witnessing how much he was loved and cared for….love that seemed to bond and grow stronger with time ….and a care that only a family can have when that certain person( Gary) must possess that care – himself. I know this time is painful beyond words and the loss something that just feels like it will hurt forever more….yet please know all of you that loved cared and shared a life with Gary -he leaves behind one of the richest lives lived. He has what everyone one of us live for…he lived life- feeling loved.
…he seemed to be living the true pûrpose of living a life…creating a wild garden of love and watching it bloom .. …and that made him one of the luckiest people on earth because….he really lived a life worth living.

All my love…and thoughts-prayers to all of you…and to you Gary …open arms of hope….Jack virginia and Candace
