    I am so sorry for your loss of Gary. Griz as we used to call him was a very decent guy. We had many good times together working together, fishing out of Masseys etc. I recall when he first met you and you swept him off of his feet.
    I wish you comfort as you adjust to this big loss of someone we all cared about.
