    Our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family, Gary. Although we did not have the pleasure of knowing either of you very long, we enjoyed your company as we seemed to have alot in common being from the same hometown and our friendship with Lisa & Jim Geiger. For both of those reasons we are thankful that we did meet. Marie was a lovely lady. May peace be with Marie and yourself and your extended family.
