David and Edwin, it is with deep sorrow that I contemplate Gary's passing. I know that he had a profound love, respect and admiration for both of you. I was happy because of Gary and his whole family and all they brought to me. I love what I learned from Gary and I cherish knowing all of his friends and family. For this, I'd say that I am a better person. Gary and I will live on through the beautiful family that we have created, thank God. Our thoughts and prayers are with you both.
