    Kim, Cody, Zach, Kyle, Keith, Angela, Terry and family. Our hearts are broken. Gary was one of a kind. He always made us smile, laugh and want to be a better person. When we first started dating and got married he was always there. Gary and Kevin took Mark to cut down our first Christmas Tree and we will never forget. It was the most special tree ever. He was more like family. We love you all and are praying for all of you.
