Garry's favorite saying:Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave in a well preserved body,but to slide in sideways,totally worn out,shouting "Holy cow what a ride!"You always said you were going to go as long as you could and then one day longer--you gave it all you had! We love you big brother(Unkie) and we'll miss you more than words can say.
