  1. Dear Diane and Family, Truly you have my deepest sympathy at this time. You know that I know exactly what you are going through. My heart and prayers are extended to you at this time. I know that you know that God makes no mistakes. It will take a while, a long while, for you to come to grips with this; but God is a good God and He can do everything but fail. Trust in Him Diane, and you will be alright. If you need someone to talk to or just to give you a warm hug, please don’t hesitate to call on me. I know that David will welcome Gary into God’s Heavenly kingdom and they will take on the housing authority in the great beyond. (Smile) May God bless you and keep you in His loving care. Peace and love, Eleanor

  2. Diane – words cannot express how deeply sorry I am for your loss. Gary was a good husband and father, as well as one of the best friends anyone could ever ask for. They say that God only takes the good ones and Gary was one of the best. The relationship you shared was so rare – a relationship that not many people experience in their entire lifetime. Please try to think of the good times and know that Gary is now walking with the angels, free of pain, watching over you and Kenshae until the time comes for you all to be together again. I will pray for God to give you the strength you need to make it through this most difficult time in your life.

  5. Diane; I can’t begin to tell you the heart felt pain I experienced when I learned that God Had called Gary home.

I will forever remember the unconditional love the two of you shared, and how you supported and stood steadfast on what was right. Time will eventually heal the pain and sorrow you current feel. You will forever carry .The Love of Your Life. in your heart and Memories. May God forever bless you and your family. Love you always……
