  1. I have not seen “little Gary” since he was 8 or so years old I believe. I thought and think of him most days. This is so heartbreaking for all that were close to him, I imagine. I am Dee Dee’s sister Jennifer and I remember playing with Gary and Corey when they were babies. Rest In Peace Gary. I love you. Aunt Jennifer

  2. RIP, Gary. Fly high with The angels. you are going to make a great one. You will be greatly missed by many. I will miss that laugh of yours, and we had many🤣. I promise to be here for your family. I am praying for them and all who have been impacted by your loss. You were so young, with so much life ahead of you. You truly made a difference in many people’s lives. Thanks for being there for my girls when they needed a date for the father-daughter dance. They had a blast! Lots of good memories 😊 You were a gracious caring individual that will always be a part of my memories. Your friend
