As you go through this valley of grief and sadness, may it comfort you to know that family and friends are lifting you in prayer. May you feel God’s comfort, love and peace surround you in ways you’ve never felt before. I remember Gary’s generous and gentle spirit with the residents when he worked for Shepherd’s Care many years ago. May heartfelt sympathies to Margot and the whole extended family!

So sorry to hear of your loss, Margot. Jim and I so enjoyed the many opportunities we had to share Lindgren family gatherings with you and Gary. He will be missed, but his beautiful spirit will live on in his children and grandchildren. Stay strong. Marilyn and Jim Lindgren

It is so sad to loose such a chearful friend, we enjoyed many laughs with Gary and Margot at their home and ours and listened to the stories of their life, Gary and my family shared a passion for camp fires and burnt many cords of wood together.

Gary Will Always Be Missed
With Admiration
