My dear cousin, Gary. We never lost contact throughout our adult lives. He was none like any other, just a very special and extraordinary human being. Dear cousin, may you rest now in the Loving Arms of God. I will NEVER forget you. Your life vibrates within my bones. Loving you, as in life, I love you dearly in death, a special and new radiating love and life with you, in our LOVING GOD.
