I'm so sorry to hear about Garry. What can I say he was a hell of a guy. His humor, the best. So many good times. And of course Shelly you have to remember the dump! I so wish I could be there. Wow all the kids, I know he enjoyed them. My love to you Vera and the rest of you. My prayers are all around all of you.

Bless you during this difficult time
