Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Though I only met Uncle Gary three times that I can remember (as distance kept us apart), I got to know him better in recent years thru Facebook messenger. He was extremely proud of his kids and grandkids, filling me in on what everyone was doing and where everyone was. I remember as a child visiting Gary and his family in Lancaster. I so wanted to be part of that family, running around the farm in bare feet, taking care of the horses and farm animals. I remember clocks? My dreams of farm life were dashed at meal time; there were so many flies we ate our sandwich standing on the other side of the road. So much for this city gal turning country! But Uncle Gary was so kind and welcoming. Many years later meeting at the family reunion in Danville, he was curious about our family and easy to talk to. I wish Gary and my mom had gotten a chance to be together before he passed. She misses his phone calls. May he be pain free and may he watch over his family and my mom, who misses and thinks of him every day.

I miss Gary. In the past few years we kept in touch by phone usually two or three times a month. I always felt better after we talked—he lifted me up. He was always so optimistic except those few times his stubbornness would show up. And that was ok. I always told him that was his dad showing. He never ever complained. I wish we would have lived closer, although it never felt like we lived far apart. Looking back on our photos, I always had my arm around him. Even though we were apart most of our lives it never felt that way. I miss him every day. Some day we’ll finally be together.
