Wanda, my sister, Anthony, my nephew, Stephanie, and extended family—-my sincere condolences and deepest love to you all! I will miss you, Gary, my brother-in-law! I’m so glad to have met you and known you! May your Spirit keep watch over all whom you love. Grief and sadness do not last. Someday, we shall all see one another again, happy, healthy; our hearts filled with joy and peace.

CandleMr. Smith (sorry I never quite could get comfortable calling him Gary) was a fixture in my family's life since the 80s (?!). I'll miss his kind subtle humor and gentleness. Thank you for sharing him.

Love to Wanda, Stephanie, Sue, and the gang.
