To Judith and all of Gary's family. I want to express my deepest sympathy in your loss. I worked with Gary at IH and played basketball on Thursday evening's with him for years. I remember he used to get so mad at me because he thought I was setting moving screens (I was :-). But I always enjoyed his friendship and our time together on and off the court. May God bless you and give you comfort in this time.
