Kurt and I were saddened to hear about Gary's passing. He was one of the kindest neighbors we ever had in Cherokee Point. It is our prayer that you all will find comfort in the many happy memories you shared with him. Why Gary is probably driving his golf cart on the golden streets in heaven and rejoicing with the Saints, and preparing a place for those who remain here until called home.

Sandra, Kurt and Linsey Grace Meng

Tricia and Family,
I am so sorry to hear about Gary. Years ago when I was the mail carrier for Cherokee Point it was always such a pleasure to see his smiling face. His friendly wave was always so welcome and cheered me each time I saw him or Jan. I know that he will be greatly missed by you and your family. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
