  3. Gary was the greatest man on earth. He’s also the man I’ve been lucky enough to call dad all my life.
    His compassion, his courage, his strength, and his integrity and drive to stay with the fight and never give up in what you believe has definitely been instilled in me. Thank you dad for all that you’ve done for me and your family we all love you forever and always. I know you’re standing in line now to get your wings. Please be at peace and cradled with love from all of us that you left temporarily here on earth. Until we meet again. I love you forever. Your daughter, Michele
