My condolences to you all for the loss of your loved one Gary.
May these scriptures bring you all a measure of comfort and hope during this difficult time.

Revelation 21: 3, 4
With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.

I still can’t believe this Gary, I keep coming back to your obituary thinking maybe it won’t be there and it’s all just a terrible nightmare, then I find myself feeling selfish cause I think of your family and all the pain and confusion their feeling and will always feel, all we can do now is pray there is a heaven and your there and at peace, whatever peace truly is I hope you found it my dear friend. The sadness amongst everyone is heart wrenching but I guess it’s shows just how special and loved you were and always will be, I will never forget you and each moment every spent with you, always in my heart

Darlene and family, so sorry for the loss of your precious boy. God speed on his journey to heaven and his Dad’s open arms. May precious memories bring peace, comfort and many smiles to warm your heart. Blessings to all the family.
Cynthia & Frank Winsor
